Local Natural Wonders Day 31 - Maquoit Bay Conservation Land in Brunswick, Maine
Maquoit Bay Conservation Land is a 124-acre preserve owned by the Town of Brunswick and protected through conservation easement with the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust (BTLT). This land is comprised mostly of woodlands and some salt marshes. It has a mile-long looped trail for walking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing along an old woods road, as well as gorgeous views of Maquoit Bay on the Maine coast. Where the trail meets the coastline, hikers will find Rocky Point, a unique rocky promontory. This location is an ideal spot for swimming at high tide in the warm waters of the shallow bay.
