Pork Point Walking Trail, Bowdoinham


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: 0.75 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Kennebec River

At this amazing town parcel, you can follow a 0.75-mile well-worn trail along the edge of the Kennebec River to Pork Point. There are wonderful views most of the way.

The path is unmarked but easy to follow. At times the trail gets quite narrow and edges the short but steep bank down to the river, but for the most part it is flat and easy (with occasional fallen trees requiring a big step).

After you round the corner of Pork Point, the trail continues along the river behind fields before petering out.

When it’s warm out—go for a swim!

Directions: The closest address is 304 Pork Point Rd. Once you are on Pork Point Road, look for a white farmhouse across from wide fields. A few meters from the house on the opposite side of the street is a small parking area and a yellow gate. There’s room for about two cars. If the lot is full, you can park along the side of the road.


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