At Snow’s Cove Preserve, you’ll walk through forest to the edges of the wide Bagaduce River. The Blue Hill Heritage Trust says this area is an important breeding ground for horseshoe crabs.
For some reason, the land trust has carved out the trail system so that you can opt out of doing the .25-mile Shore Trail — perhaps because the footing is a little bit harder? — but don’t miss out on walking it if you can. It offers access to the river and views.
Directions: A small parking lot and the trailhead are located on the west side of Route 15/Snow’s Cove Road, approximately 1.3 miles south of the junction of Route 15/Mines Road and Route 176/Southern Bay Road.
