Huston Landing includes a very short walk from the roadside parking spot, down a sloping bank (be mindful of watching for the tree blazes) to a wondrous view. The small preserve is maintained by the Damariscotta River Association. According to Maine Trail Finder, Huston Landing is named for the spot where, in 1740, the Huston family settled after landing just to the south.
Directions: From US Route 1 in Damariscotta head south on ME Route 129 for 1.6 miles. A preserve sign marks a small pull-off on the right.
