This preserve is absolutely charming. The trails follow the rugged shore and go through the spruce forest as well. It is our first choice. Also it is dog freindly

Nice easy to moderate hike with lots of woods and ocean views. Love the coves around every corner in this part of Maine.

One of the best walks we did. Beautiful changing sceneries of water views and moss covered woods. The Maine heritage trust did a great job in marking the trails. We saw a seal and enjoyed fantastic views. Limited parking, come early!
