Trail Descriptions

GRAVEL BEACH, ROCKY LEDGES, WATERFRONT This picturesque headland beach is an ideal picnic spot or a stopover on a paddle between Rockport and Camden. The gravel and rock shore is accessible at all tides. Visitors are asked to stay on the beach area. No camping or campfires please. Water access only via town landing.

Look for

- Harbor treasures on the shorefront - Over 20 wildflowers near the shore, including sea lavender and seaside goldenrod - A view of Indian Island Lighthouse, and the keepers’ house, built in 1875 and now privately owned - Osprey feeding in the water and nesting on shore, and seals swimming in the harbor with the tides


The preserve is a 1.4 mile paddle from Rockport Marine Park at 93 Pascal Ave, where there is a public boat launch. A sign is located on the preserve’s shore, which is the tip of Beauchamp Point, just before Indian Island.
