Trail Descriptions

OPEN WETLANDS, DEEP FORESTS, WILDLIFE A multitude of habitat types host an abundance of wildlife. The scrub-shrub habitat, created by a recent timber harvest, hosts relatively rare early-successional species including song birds. This is a great preserve for those interested in wildlife and birding. The trail comes close to several vernal pools, providing important habitat for frogs and salamanders.

Look for

Porcupines in hemlock stands, signs of their dens and heavily chewed trees Wood frogs and spotted salamanders using vernal pools Evidence of bear, moose, deer, coyote, and hare


From Searsport, take Mt. Ephraim Road west (off of Route 1). In 2.6 miles turn right onto Savery Road. Follow for 0.6 miles to the preserve parking lot on the right.
