Fall Picnic | Where to Go for a Foliage View
Picnic in Newry, ME
In downtown Bethel, Maine, pick up a basket (or a pine bucket) at Maine Line Products. Fill it down the road at the Good Food Store, a deli and “most unique grocer.” At Step Falls Preserve, walk a gentle quarter-mile from the parking lot alongside Wight Brook. Maple, birch, and beech trees arch over the water framing vistas of the Bear River Valley. Set your “table” here on granite slabs next to the cascades and pools.Maine Line Products, 207-824-2522. 23 Main St., Bethel.
