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.

A real bonus for those of us living here. Great staff, interesting programs for adults and for children as well. Preserves are well maintained, user friendly, good places to re-energize. Keep up the good work.

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.
