We thoroughly enjoyed this hike. We were glad to have walking sticks as some parts are steep with lots of rocks and roots. The trails are very well marked and the map is helpful.

Get outside and walk these wonderful trails made possible by the land trust. Take time to explore the marked "vistas" for breathtaking views.

Find yourself a map of the many trails that are managed by the Trust. Each one has a nice little parking lot, decent maps, and info. The trails are well marked and clear. The most challenging are Ovens Mouth and Zak.

They do have a nice wide .5 mile loop mulch trail at Penny Lake which would be fine for a stroller. It has a bridge along the trail that offers a view of the lake with benches for snacking and resting a bit.

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.
