Perhaps the best hike in the Boothbay Land Trusts beautiful properties. A nice balance of woods and water. It is a loop of easy to moderate difficulty that is pretty doable for folks of all ages. The small parking area can become crowed at peak times.

This is one of our favorite places to get to by boat. We've enjoyed anchoring out, spending the night in the lovely protected basin. Tidal currents can be strong, so time your arrival/departure accordingly.

What a fantastic place to take a walk. We did the western trail, a bit longer than the east. 2 nice vistas and several more as you traveled along. You could make the hike longer if you hopped over the footbridge from west to east. Not terribly difficult with no steep uphills.

We love everything about the Booth Bay Land Trust preserves. This is no exception. Due to a hamstring injury we only did the easy loop this time but even that affords amazing views and a good workout.

Have hiked Oven's Mouth east. Easy and very pretty hike around the peninsular. Plan to do the west side tomorrow. It is amazing how little development there is in these back channels of Boothbay.

This is a place you can sit back and relax. Bring a lunch and sit and watch the Cross River flow by,maybe you'll see a blue heron feeding in the river or a seal swim by. It's a nice hike thru the woods but make sure you bring some bug spray in the summer. If going in the fall you'll... More

This one of the Boothbay Regional Land Trust properties. The protected acreage totals 146 divided into east and west sections. The trail on the east side where we parked is a 1.1 mile loop along the coast that is rated as easy. We started off on the trail, but crossed a bridge and mistakenly began to follow the shore trail... More

A nice walk through the woods - but we can get plenty of that at home in Vermont. The views of the salt marsh and river were too few and, sadly for us, were only sporting seagulls when we were there. Had been hoping for more variety.

We followed the white-blazed loop around the outside of the west side trails. My 11 year old, my 86 lb akita and I managed it in about 2 hours. Fairly flat and easy. Several places where the trail is hard to find need new/better/brighter blazes, especially where trails come together. Pleasant and quiet - we saw only one other person... More
