It took us awhile to find the parking spots for the preserve but once we found it had a great experience hiking the lower loop. Challenging and interesting hike through many different types of ecosystems. Loved the views from the top of the hill.

Vinalhaven, Maine has many wonderful hiking trails maintained by the local Land Trust. The Perry Creek trail is a wonderful mixture of woods, sea, and creek side. The trails are well maintained, well marked and of an intermediate level. wonderful summer and fall.

If you are Into hiking,and I am not......you will enjoy this well maintained trail and beautiful views. Situated outside of town but easy to find there is adequate parking and well marked trails. It is not a walk in the park nor is it meant to be but on a sunny day the walk is memorable and rewarding.

Loved this hike. Great spot for a quick skinny-dip! Walking around the Eastern tip of Perry creek is beautiful. And my dog loved it, too. ...but can't find the Southern Parking lot to hike the Southern Part, which includes "falls"
