Clough Point, Westport Island

A little but lovely spot at the north end of Westport Island, Clough Point offers a short dog walk or picnicking spot (there are lots of artfully placed picnic tables perched over pretty ledges for some beautiful dinners at dusk). One of the trails is wheelchair accessible! The preserve also offers granite benches for taking in the views of Wiscasset. The trails mostly hug the water and come to about .5 miles.

Directions: To get there, take Westport Bridge Road to North End Road, and drive close to the end. Parking on left.
