Green Point Preserve, West Bath


  • Preserve Size: 45 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~.6 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: deep water shore of Winnegance Bay

This there-and-back short trail, maintained by the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust, takes you to a rocky outcrop on Winnegance Bay. From trailhead to show it’s a little over half a mile. If you look closely at the rocks, you might see a mysterious carving in the rock, possibly made by the Abenaki Indians, who lived, hunted and fished in this region for many years. The view here is astonishing, the seaside rocks sunny and warm.

Directions: Follow Rt. 209 from Bath 2.4 miles to the Winnegance Store. Take a right on High Street, which eventually becomes Campbell Pond Road. About 2.2 miles from the store, take a right on Birch Point. Parking is along the roadside 1 mile down on the left.
