This former saltwater farm, with mowed fields leading to a protected cove, with a pond and apple orchards and beautiful views all around, is now the headquarters of the Boothbay Region Land Trust. The trust has created two walking loops that are easy and flat enough that they are suitable for a hardy wheelchair. The shorter path loops around the small pond and the other roughly .8-mile loop goes around the perimeter of this 32-acre property, through fields, woods, and along the shorefront.
