Berry Woods Preserve
View Connector Trails
From US Route 1 in Woolwich, take ME Route 127 South approximately 10 miles, and bear right on to Bay Point Road. The parking area for the preserve is approximately 1 mile down on the right. From the parking lot, hikers can take a short trail to cross Bay Point Road to access the eastern half of the preserve. The trail crosses private property and hikers must stay on the trail.
This 377-acre preserve connects with another 2,000 acres of conserved lands—including Reid State Park and Maine Audubon’s Josephine Newman Sanctuary, an area stretching all the way across Georgetown Island. The preserve is accessible through an extensive and interesting trail system over relatively level and easy terrain. Aside from hiking, visitors to Berry Woods also enjoy hunting, fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, and more.
Thanks to trail work completed after 2009, trails now lead through oak-pine forest from the shores of the Kennebec to Robinhood Cove. Visitors can see an old mica mine, Wilson Pond, an old cellar hole, and natural blowdowns.
Please adhere to the following policies while using the preserve:
- Day use only
- Foot traffic only
- Please stay on the trail and boardwalk to protect this fragile ecosystem
- No collecting of plants or animals
- No pets
- Carry out all litter
- No fires, smoking, or camping
This trail passes through a property that was acquired in part with funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program. For more information about the LMF program and the places it has helped to protect, please visit the LMF webpage.
