Pott’s Point Preserve, Harpswell


  • Preserve Size: 1 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .5 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: tide pools, a gravel beach, views of Casco Bay

To reach Pott’s Point, you have to park at the small wharf at the end of Harpswell Neck. You then walk down a private road, past seaside bungalows, to reach the end of the land. There’s no real trail here, but you can walk over the rocks and seaweed, and back along a little path through the brush to make a small loop. The tide pools are big and clear.

Directions: Drive to the southern end of the Harpswell Neck Road (Route 123). Park as best you can along the road, without blocking the pier or Town Landing. Walk along the private Pott’s Point Road to the sand bar that connects the Preserve to Harpswell Neck. You may also walk along the shore below the high tide line.


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