Loads of hiking trails and opportunities to see places you would otherwise not be able to access. Different levels of difficulty and varied terrain, although always remember this is Maine! Trails can be rugged and always take precautions against ticks and other insects.

Ocean Point provides a great view of the Boothbay Harbor islands and the geologic formations that support the tide pools are a feast for the eye and imagination. How lovely that the land trust was set aside to educate the future explorers.

We had several wonderful walks on BRLT lands. In particular Potters Point was an exceptionally beautiful and well maintained site.

This cozy little cove is so worth checking out with its lovely scenic views, textures galore with lots of shells to be found! The adventurous one in your group, like my husband, will enjoy climbing to the top of steep mound overlooking the inlet!

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.
