“A walk in the Woods”

Boothbay Region Land Trust
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The land trust has many day hikes that are worth it if you have the time. My favorite is Porter's Preserve on Barter's Island. It's an easy relatively flat walk with some wonderful vistas of the Sheepscot River. Also consider Oven's Mouth which contains steeper inclines. The only reason did not give this an excellent rating is that I consistently encounter dogs running at large even though there is a leash requirement. So if you have smaller children keep this in mind.
I'm not sure if it's still available but the Land Trust published a trail book a few years ago and it's worth the price. The Boothbay Harbor Library or Sherman's Book store may be able to help in that area.
Also bring along mosquito repellant!

A great many or nature trails to explore. Good for body and soul! A donation at entrance is up to the visitor - we popped in a few bucks at the start and a few more after the visit. It is so much better today 2014 than the 1960's - so much natural space, well kept, Trails well documented and a great abundence! Great stuff with no cost if you desire... Worth the trip - Oven Mit is my favorite.

We took a walk on the West Ovens and enjoyed it tremendously. The path was soft with pine needles and there was some elevation change for variation. We saw a seal in the water - totally unexpected! Paths were well delineated. There is no fee for this lovely walk in the woods (and part of it has a water view.)

We did two of the many hikes that the Boothbay Region Land Trust has to offer. You can either look them up online or pick up a brochure at many establishments in Boothbay Harbor. We did Ovens Mouth East Preserve and another one which I can't remember. Great trails and so many to choose from. I look forward to trying another one or two when we visit there again.

The land trust has set aside perhaps twenty parcels all over Boothbay. It affords new visitors to the area an opportunity to see pieces of land that normally would be closed as private. They are well marked and documented. The highlight is Ovens Mouth Preserve. I have been to all of them and as a newcomer to Maine it has given me a sense of belonging instead if a sense of exclusion.
