We will be highlighting an accessible walk, located in one of the counties we serve, each week on our Facebook page.
September 30 - Completing our tour of the counties we serve, this week's walk is in Cumberland County, at Maquoit Bay Conservation Land in Brunswick. The 0.7 mile trail follows an old woods road, perfect for walking, which leads to Rocky Point, a unique rocky promontory offering spectacular coastal vistas of Maquoit Bay. Enjoy!
September 24 - The Georges River Land Trust offers many great options to explore in Knox County, but for accessibility we suggest the Langlais Sculpture Preserve which offers a universally accessible 0.3 mile path (and a wheelchair can be reserved ahead of time).
September 16 - Lace up your shoes and head out to Waldoboro - The Osborn Finch Wildlife Sanctuary is a 0.2 mile easy walking trail through a tall spruce forest that opens out to a stunning view with access to the tidal Medomak River.

September 9 - This week, we're heading to Sagadahoc County for a beautiful walk at the Phippsburg Land Trust's Spirit Pond and MacDonald Sanctuary Preserve.
