Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1966 in cooperation with the State of Maine to protect valuable salt marshes and estuaries for migratory birds. Located along 50 miles of coastline in York and Cumberland counties, the refuge consists of eleven divisions between Kittery and Cape Elizabeth.

Beautiful spot, got some professional pictures done here and they came out awesome. Many areas for different scenery. Short to moderate length walk with plenty to see! Beach, woods, rocks, abandoned house hundreds of years old.. love this place!

what a beautiful place to discover in my own backyard. Idyllic coastal setting.

What a hidden gem! A wooded pathway through maple swamps, alongside tidal estuaries and even an awesome historic beach front estate property, now vacant. Well cared for, limited parking and very clear signage along the way. On a late November Sunday, we only encountered 2 other walkers; maybe more crowded in summer.
