Clough Point, Westport Island


  • Preserve Size: 8 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~0.75 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Sheepscot River and views of town

A little but gorgeous park 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). Two very short trails are wheelchair accessible, and come out at scenic points. The preserve also offers granite benches for taking in the views of Wiscasset. The trails mostly hug the water and come to about 0.75 miles.

Directions: To get there, take Westport Bridge Road to North End Road, and drive close to the end. Parking on left. There are three parking spaces — one of them is handicap parking only.
