Eastern Knubble Preserve, Cutler


  • Preserve Size: 30 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .7 mile one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: cobble beach, views of the Bold Coast, mossy forest

The .7-mile trail (one way) on this 30-acre Maine Coast Heritage Trust property deposits hikers onto a cobble beach, with views of the Bold Coast. At low tide, you can walk over to Eastern Ear, a little island (a knubble?). A side trail takes you to an old silver and copper mine. 

Directions: If you’re driving from the west, you will find the trailhead just after the sharp turn Route 191 takes in the village of Cutler. The trailhead is marked with a small side to the right of the fire station. You can park in a lot across the street from the trailhead and fire station.


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