Nice easy, shady trail that hugs the river beaches for a while. We weren't sure how far you could hike on the shoreline. We walked all the way to the end of the first beach and managed to get back to the road but it was definitely tricky. Stayed on the main trail after that. We took the shorter loop and it took a little over an hour.

Easy part of trail was the farm road. we also did the shore trail which is narrow but doable.

Nice easy trail that the whole family can enjoy (any age) nice view of the river with many custom made benches along the way to enjoy many view spots.

Nice forest, pond and sandy estuary beach views - very accessible by Damariscotta-to-Boothbay river road.

Really enjoyed it. Nice trail and well marked. Nicely shaded from the sun too.

This trail is great for what it is: a quiet, easy trail in a peaceful area, with terrific ocean views when you reach the water's edge. We went for a family hike with our 6 year old who enjoyed the trail as well. There are several paths and options. We met other hikers with dogs. The trails were still snow covered in March this year, which was better than mud! The location is great for us and I'm sure we'll be back!

Lovely views of woods and water. Moderate difficulty at most, but lots of bugs and Mosquitos in May.

Great trail with scenic views. Very dog friendly. A good mix of terrain, but never too challenging that a our young son couldn't enjoy it.
