We did the Oven's Mouth East Trail and West Trail. Both offer nice views of the river and the walking is very easy. The West Trail has more hills but nothing difficult. There are BRLT trails all over the area.

We did a nice short hike, a little over a mile, on the Gregory trail. There are fabulous river views along the way. No facilities but that's OK with a short hike. Not far from the botanical gardens which are also worth a trip.

The trust has many trails for hiking or easy walking by the water or through the woods. Check online or stop by their office onthe way into the harbor.

My husband and I were in Boothbay recently. We hiked 2 different properties, The Porter Preserve and The Gregory Hiking Trail. Both were enjoyable. It's a great way to get different views of the area water ways.

A great way to get exercise in the Boothbay area and get back to nature. The trails were well marked taking you through the woods, over small water areas and over roots. Not really suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. There are many different trails to...More

Check out the Land Trust website. There are now at least 15 Preserves with trails, plus 3 on islands. They range from meadows to woodland to pond and coastal views. Hiking them has been fun! Now at the website you can look at trail photos...More

A great deal of inland woodland area hikes. A bit disappointed in not being closer to the coast. Around Booths Bay much of the land on the coast is privately owned, a downfall.

Hiked Oven's Mouth East and part of West. Only about 10-15 minutes drive from Boothbay Harbor. Easy trails - hills are modest but there are plenty of exposed tree roots. Most of the shore trail abuts water and is very scenic. Hike out to the...More

Response from ChessieNero | Reviewed this property |
No, there is no camping allowed on Damariscove Island. Day use only; no campfires are allowed. All Boothbay Region Land Trust preserves are open dawn to dusk year round.
