From US Route 1 in Damariscotta head south on ME Route 129 for 1.6 miles. A small pull off marked by a sign on the right allows parking for just a couple of vehicles. The trail heads down through the field to a large blue marker. Follow the trail down toward the shore past a prominent boulder (glacial erratic).
Huston Landing is further proof that small is beautiful. Keep an eye out for horseshoe crabs, eagles, and osprey.
A gift to the DRA in 2006 from Huston Dodge, a local antiquarian, the preserve is named for Mr. Dodge’s mother’s family, who settled in this very spot in 1740, landing just to the south.
Trail open to daytime use only. No camping or fires permitted. Dogs must be leashed or under control at all times. Please do not remove any vegetation and please respect area closures during nesting season.
