Hatchtown Preserve, Bristol

The trail makes two short loops on a little peninsula that juts out into Pemaquid River wetlands before the river flows into Boyd Pond. It’s pretty, and can be wet. The 35-acre preserve is protected by the Pemaquid Water Association. When I visited in spring of 2017, I picked up a lot of ticks.

Directions: The kiosk and trailhead is on Boyd Pond Lane, a narrow lane off of Sproul Hill Road in Bristol. The turn off to the lane is fairly close to Hatchtown Farm.
