Broad Point Preserve, Islesboro


  • Preserve Size: 50 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.2 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: Broad Cove, cedar swamp, Mill Creek

At this nice preserve, a short trail connects to a 1-mile loop that brings walkers through a cedar swamp to a gravel beach on Gilkey Harbor. The land trust has set up a picnic table, with a view, just behind the beach. Though there are boards placed along the trail at wet spots, it can still be quite spongy and damp in areas.

Directions: The trail head is off Mill Creek Road, about .3 miles from the junction with Ferry Road.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
