If you live in Phippsburg, you have the right to park at the Totman Cove preserve, which includes a popular sandy beach. Non-residents, who might want to consider visiting during the off-season, can park on Sebasco Road and walk in from the trail system for Robinson’s Rock and Merritt Mountain, which is a really nice way to travel! Robinson’s Rock has lovely views out to the ocean, and its trail system is blazed. But the trail to West Point Road, and the access road to Totman Cove, is not marked, albeit fairly easy to follow.
Once you have crossed West Point Road and walked down the Totman Cove access road, you’ll find a trailhead to the 1.5 miles or so of trails behind the picnic table on the bluff. The trails are marked with red blazes.
Directions: From Route 209, take the Sebasco Road about ½ mile to West Point Road. On the West Point Road, about .25 mile on the right, is a small area to park at the trail head across the road from the Totman Preserve sign. The trail can also be accessed from the Sebasco Road. Parking is on the right side of the road. The trail is on the left, across the street.
