Herbert Preserve, Islesboro


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: 1.3 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: tidal inlets

Two short loops bring walkers along the forested edges of the tidal Mill Pond. The west loop is .7 miles, and the eastern loop is about .6 miles, according to my GPS.

Directions: The trailhead is on Ryder’s Cove Road (or just Ryder Road on Google maps), just about 600 feet or so from the intersection with Main Road and Durkee’s Store.


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