This coastal Maine trail takes you along the edge of a peat bog up to small ocean cliffs
Anyone want to take a little hike to work off some of the turkey?
Difficulty: Moderate. The loop trail on the preserve is about 1.5 miles long and features plenty of exposed tree roots and rocks that can make footing tricky. The trail travels up and over small but steep hills.
Information: Covering 95 acres in the coastal town of Harpswell, Long Reach Preserve features one of the longest hiking trails in the area — a 1.5-mile loop trail that explores two prominent bedrock ridges and the shore of Long Reach. Cutting across the Loop Trail, the Bog Trail (which is about 0.5 mile long) travels along the edge of a peat bog, which is located between the two ridges.
The preserve is owned and maintained by the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust, which has conserved more than 1,600 acres in Harpswell and surrounding towns.
