Trailhead

From US Route 1 in Thomaston, head south on ME Route 97 toward Cushing. Travel for 6.8 miles and turn left onto Salt Pond Road. Continue for 1.4 miles and turn right onto Pleasant Point Road. After 2.2 miles, turn left onto Stone’s Point Road. (Ignore the first sign for Stone’s Point Road. It is a loop that intersects with Pleasant Point Road twice. You want the lower intersection.) Parking is available in a small, grassy area on the left on Stone’s Point Road, just after turning off from Pleasant Point Road.

Description

Nestled between Pleasant Point Road and Stone’s Point Road, the 65-acre Pleasant Point Nature Preserve is owned and managed by the Georges River Land Trust. It features a mixed woodland and significant wetlands with a 1.5-mile trail network. The trail takes visitors through a red maple swamp and a spruce-firm broom forest with an abundance of moss and lichens. There is also a scenic 250-foot pedestrian boardwalk that connects the western loops to the easternmost loop trail.

Other Information

The Pleasant Point Nature Preserve is open to the public for day-use only; no overnight camping is allowed. Hunting is NOT permitted. 

Leashed dogs are permitted. Please clean up after your pet!
