Sipp Bay Preserve, Perry


  • Preserve Size: 94 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Cobscook Bay, woodland, fields, rocky beach

This is an interesting Maine Coast Heritage Trust property with a longer looped trail on very soft, pine-covered ground and with lovely views of Cobscook Bay, and a shorter path to a rocky beach and mud flats popular with clammers. The parcel includes 94 acres of woodland and grassy fields.

The longer loop is marked more clearly than the shorter loop. To get to the longer wooded loop trail, walk down the gravel road and look for trail openings — first one is on the left, and the second one is on the right. If you’re here in early August, enjoy the raspberries! They’re delicious! The shorter loop is a little tricky to find. I say just head down here to enjoy the view and the beach.

Directions: From the west, follow Route 1 north from the intersection of Route 1 and Route 214 in Pembroke 3.8 miles and turn right on Burby Road. From the east and the intersection of Route 1 and Route 190 in Perry, follow Route 1 south 2.8 miles and turn left on Burby Road. Follow Burby Road 0.75 miles to the peninsula.


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