Thanksgiving Morning, Cool and Crisp, 2,4 miles a great hike anytime. White trail has a few confusing spots but no one got lost. A good time.

The owners of the bed and breakfast where we were staying told us about the walking trails and we decided to give one a try. Porter's Preserve was absolutely lovely. It was a beautiful walk, not too difficult, but very scenic. Took about an hour.

My wife and I had a GREAT time hiking through the Porter Preserve. Such a beautiful place for a leisurely walk, with lots of vistas and benches to stop and take it all in. This place is truly a gem.

We had several hikes in BRLT preserves. Porter was our favorite. Great ocean views. Oven's Mouth was also quite beautiful. All the preserves were well marked with clear trails. These hikes are the best way we found to appreciate the beauty of the region. .

We wanted to do a bit of hiking and by chance saw these signs around Route 96 for the BBRLT Preserve. They have a terrific website with maps. There are incredibly well maintained trails through the beautiful woods, over small ridges and along the gorgeous...More

We hiked Porter Preserve on Barter's Island. Trails are relatively easy to moderate. Beautiful vistas. We also walked the Ocean Point walk. Easy stroll along the rocks. It’s especially nice during a sunset.

They do have a nice wide .5 mile loop mulch trail at Penny Lake which would be fine for a stroller. It has a bridge along the trail that offers a view of the lake with benches for snacking and resting a bit.

No, there is no camping allowed on Damariscove Island. Day use only; no campfires are allowed. All Boothbay Region Land Trust preserves are open dawn to dusk year round.
