Owls Head

Map shows trails in Knox County

  • Roaring Spout — A very small preserve, reachable by foot or bike only, down a private dirt road.
  • Owls Head State Park — This is a small state park, with two very short trails, one to beautiful rocky beach and the other to a lighthouse perched high on a bluff.
  • Plaisted Preserve — A 0.3-mile trail through lovely forest takes you to a stunning cove.
  • Richard Carver Harbor Park — A pocket park providing public access to the harbor. It has short mowed trails, an accessible pier, and a small pebbly beach.
  • Ash Point Preserve — With Plaisted Preserve, these two Owls Head preserves are not to be missed. Ash Point includes more than 2,000 feet along beautiful coast, with dramatic views of the Atlantic and nearby islands
  • Birch Point Beach State Park — Sometimes the best times to walk at Maine’s state parks, especially the ones with beaches, are during the off-season when the gates are closed and you’re forced to walk the extra distance in! The sandy beach here, while modest in size, is beautiful, and has some flattish ledge flanking it on both sides.
