This easy loop provides access to the rocky shoreline of Petit Manan Point and offers a self-guided nature trail highlighting the wildlife and coastline of the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
Taft Point is a 68-acre preserve of woods and coastline. Two loop trails offer views of Flanders Bay and Jones Cove; an off-shoot trail leads to the point. At low tide, visitors can walk along the beach.
Following a section of the old Maine Shoreline Railroad bed, this trail crosses wetlands that contain valuable habitat for bald eagles, wading birds, waterfowl, migratory shorebirds, and marine species in Youngs Bay.
