Mill Pond Preserve, Arrowsic


  • Preserve Size: 51 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.4-mile loop
  • Pets: no
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Back River, Spartina saltmarsh, white pine and red oak forest, shrub swamp

Hallelujah, this is a relatively new Nature Conservancy preserve (as of 2016) in Arrowsic, and it’s very special. The 1.4-mile loop takes you to a point on a peninsula with views of the Back River, and through an old homestead site. No dogs allowed here.

Directions: From Bath, take Route 127 south toward Georgetown. Take a left at Old Stage Road (which connects back to 127 farther one), and drive the windy road to the trailhead on your left, about 1.8 miles down.


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