Plaisted Preserve, Owls Head


  • Preserve Size: 10 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .3 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Broad Cove, Rockland Harbor

A lovely walk takes you to the gorgeous Broad Cove with views of the Camden Hills. The short one-way trail stops at a bluff overlooking the cove, where there is a roughly made bench. I scrambled down a steep path to get to the beach.

Directions: The preserve is off North Shore Drive, just about .3 miles from the intersection with Main Street (which becomes Lighthouse Road, and is the road you take to get to Owls Head State Park).


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