Morong Cove, Lubec


  • Preserve Size: 136 acres
  • Trail Mileage: NA
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: difficult
  • Sights: meadows

This trail is for the intrepid. What once might have been a viable trail system is no more. When I visited this wildlife preserve in July 2017, there were really no discernible trails. I did see one blaze but when I tried to follow the narrow footpath, I was quickly put off by the overgrown bushes blocking the way. I found a rough track that led through the meadows — which were thick with tall grasses — but couldn’t see my way all the way to the cove.

Directions: From Route 189, turn onto Crows Neck Road. Drive 1.8 miles and turn right onto Thompson Road. The parking area and trailhead are .6 miles ahead. Keep going beyond the last driveway for another hundred yards or so, down a narrow old road, until you see the Morong Cove sign. You can either drive this or park opposite the house (I believe…some other walkers did).


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