Curtis Farm Preserve offers visitors off-road parking for vital shoreline access, quiet trails, a mix of forest types, and wide open space to fly a kite or watch migrating raptors. An accessible picnic area on Basin Cove offers a place for rest and relaxation.
The trails take visitors through field, forest and to coastal bays, with scenic views along the way. The Preserve includes nearly 2,000 feet of shoreline on both Curtis Cove and Basin Cove, gravel beaches, a freshwater pond, forested freshwater wetlands, and 15 acres of intertidal mud flats for shellfish and wildlife nursery areas. Running up the ridge from the shore of Curtis Cove, the habitat runs from fresh water wetlands to brushy shrub areas, a mix of softwood and hardwood forest, and a six-acre open field. On a clear day, the views across Middle Bay as far west as Mount Washington are impressive.
