TEMPORARY TRAIL CLOSURES 3/12/21
Fernalds Neck Preserve is closed for the next two weeks due to mud season.
Construction, reconstruction, access road, and trail conditions sometimes necessitate temporary trail and Preserve closures. We close off trails to protect them from damage, to protect users, and to protect our contractors and volunteers who are working on trails. These occur mostly in late March – April (mud season) when heavy snow melt and rain lead to soft and muddy conditions. Without these closures, trails can become rutted, eroded, and unpleasant. In some cases they can become inaccessible. During closures we are working as hard as we can to get them back open. Please be patient.
During mud season please limit vehicle access to these Coastal Mountains Land Trust’s properties located on unpaved roads: Fernalds Neck, Lincolnville; St. Clair Preserve, Knights Pond Road, Northport; Main Stream Preserve, Stockton Springs.
Thank you for staying off closed trails!
