Birch Point State Park is the perfect setting for those looking to spend a day in peaceful serenity. Walk the crescent-shaped beach and enjoy the gentle surf. At either end of the beach, follow a short path to check out beautiful enclaves, smooth bedrock, and dunes of cobble stones and pebbles. Both 0.1-mile trails offer panoramic views of Penobscot Bay and the islands that dot the mid-coast region. Relax along the ocean, comb the beach, take in the abundant wildlife, go for a swim or try your hand at shore-line fishing. Birch Point provides the perfect leisurely getaway.
