Description

This 43-acre property includes a stone wall lined field along The Shore Road/ME-166, adjacent to the parking area and the woods beyond. The wooded portion of the property extends back from the road approximately 0.5 miles. A walking trail begins at the wood’s edge and continues to the back of the property. It ends at the edge of a beaver flowage. The trail goes through a variety of soft, hard and mixed woods with interesting ground cover, and crosses two seasonal small streams. A number of trees along the trail are well over a hundred years old.
