Gamble Preserve, Phippsburg


  • Preserve Size: 2 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .2 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Carrying Place Cove

This is a delightful, albeit small (2-acre) preserve, with a .2-mile trail that includes a couple of swings, a picturesque bench, and some craggy rocks by the shore that make for good exploring for children, and for beautiful views of a quiet harbor for adults.

Directions: From Rte. 209 at Phippsburg Town Hall go 3 miles south, and turn right onto Sebasco Rd. Follow Sebasco Road one half mile to West Point Rd on the left. Turn onto West Point Rd. and go 1.6 miles. Past the church, you will see the intersection with Carrying Place Cove Rd. on the right. The parking is just ahead to the right.


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