Tide Mill Creek, Jonesboro

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 200 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 2.5 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: tidal inlet

This roughly 200-acre preserve is set amid a landscape palette of gentle greens — it’s so pretty in a quiet way. The nicest part of the trail — the trail network is about 2.5 miles — is the section along the tidal inlet. This bit also has the best footing and is the driest. When I visited, in July 2017, sections of the Honey Pot trail were wet and overgrown, and the Downeast Coastal Conservancy recommends avoiding it and returning via the Bear Creek trail. The 1/2-mile access road you must walk in to reach the trailhead and kiosk was also a bit overgrown when I visited.

Directions: From Jonesboro on Route 1, going east, turn right onto Old Route 1 (follow signs to Roque Bluffs State Park) and then turn onto Great Cove Road. Continue 1.5 miles to Tide Mill Creek Conservation Land sign on the right.
