Merryspring's 66 acres rest mostly on an elevated knoll underlain by limestone, with the surrounding land falling away to the the north, west, and south; affording some excellent views from the Park to the surrounding countryside.

The center of the Park comprises several large meadows, which harken to the days when Merryspring was a sheep farm. The surrounding woods are a mixture of evergreen and deciduous trees, with a few notable old specimens of almost every species native to Maine.

Although the Park's woodland trails are not well suited for cross-country skiing, the meadows provide ideal rolling terrain for this activity, which we encourage. You should probably call ahead (207-236-2239) to ask about snow cover if you're considering bringing skis, however.
