Trailhead

From the intersection of US Route 1 and ME Route 73 in Rockland, head south on Maine Route 73 for 3.9 miles. Turn left onto Dublin Road and continue 1.4 miles, before taking a right onto Ballyhac Road. The access road for Birch Point State Park is in 0.8 miles on the left.

Description

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.

Other Information

Day-use areas will be open from 9:00 am to sunset daily, unless posted otherwise. Please exercise caution on ledge and rock areas, especially in wet conditions. Swimmers should note that there are no lifeguards.
