(I wish there were a review option for Family with Mobility/Access Issues.) Walked this 2 1/2 mi round trip walk with with my elderly, overweight dad; he uses a cane for stability but otherwise does well on walks if the path is more or less level. The first leg of the trail from the parking lot to the trail itself is flat, but over heavily rooted and some boggy ground. You need to take it slow and watch your step. There are well maintained planks over the wettest parts. This is appx. 1/4 mi of the hike. You then cross over to a wide, level dirt path that has easy, solid footing and nice views through the trees of the water to the right. We took the lefthand path out to the Cape instead of to the Eastern Beach. The cape is a small, stony beach with an amazing view up and down the coast-- you can see the Camden Hills and Cadillac Mountain. There are enough boulders around so you can sit and rest and watch the water. It took us about an hour and a quarter, out and back, going slowly, but if you are looking for a hike that someone with mild-to-moderate mobility issues can handle, this is a good hike. The parking lot has room for just under a dozen cars.

Great trail hike for kids. Tote roads, for the most part, which are old woods/logging roads wide enough for vehicle back when. Good periwinkle shell beach combing both on Allen's Cove and the small island reachable at lower tides and this area has some rare sea lavender plants. LOOK only. Good beachcombing and great views on Eastern Beach. This trail system is basically a 'lollipop' where the sucker is a loop, which includes walking on the rocky beach at the north end, between Allen's Cove and Eastern Beach, with the 'stick' being the almost straight entry and exit trail/road. This NEW section, from 10 to 3 on the clock, making the Y into a circle, is NOT YET marked online and on their PDF maps as of this date. There is a boggy single-file access trail that winds from the small parking lot across the Harriman Point Road to the nexus of the private properties driveways which branch off the end of Tinkers Lane. I suppose you could walk the Lane, to access, too. This is a boggy and wet area off to the left of the lollipop stick for almost all its length. In September, we were still running the gauntlet with mosquitos; cannot imagine May and June....! Bug repellant is a MUST. Trails are well marked, except that you get only one sign on the beach at the ends of the trails as they dump out onto the rocky beach. But, you won't miss them, unless there is dense fog... or you are in a fog. They have trash barrels at the ends of the currently mapped arms of the Y on the map, so be sure to pick up any plastic trash that washes up and deposit there, please. Like most of these kinds of Preserves in Maine, they DO allow hunting, so be sure to wear blaze orange when it is hunting season - rabbit, deer, turkey, duck, etc.
