Woodward Point Preserve
225 Woodward Point Road
Looking for something fun to do on Valentine’s Day? Come join BTLT, MCHT, and AMC as we explore this new preserve on the coast in Brunswick.
The conservation of Woodward Point Preserve was a joint venture of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust. Learn more about this wonderful new preserve as we explore several trails on this 87.5 acre parcel. The east section of trails is about 1.4 miles round trip and the west section is 1.6 miles total. The terrain is mostly flat and good for families with children. A great place to snowshoe or x-c ski in winter. In case of lack of snow and ice, we will hike with microspikes or similar traction.
Woodward Point is one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land in northern Casco Bay – a designated estuary of national significance. The preserve cradles all or part of two commercially important shellfish beds and is surrounded by critical habitat for waterfowl and wading birds. Woodward Point’s vast fields are also home to a healthy population of bobolinks estimated to be around eighty birds in the summer.
After the hike, take your special someone out for lunch in town.
