Trail Descriptions

No trail exists. Oceanside field, cobblestone beach. Once an active hay and blueberry field, this 7-acre field is now mowed annually to maintain habitat and provide a scenic view from Route 1 to Penobscot Bay. Access this small preserve from the beach in Ducktrap Harbor on Howe Point Road. No dogs are allowed on the beach. This is an excellent picnic spot.

From Lincolnville Beach, drive 1.1 miles north on Route 1, turning right onto Howe Point Road just before the Ducktrap River bridge. This short road dead-ends at a small parking lot adjacent to a cobble beach owned by the State of Maine. The Murray Preserve is located just to the south of the parking lot. Small metal preserve medallions will be visible from the shore.


Donated in 2007 by siblings Jim Murray and Joan Webster in memory of James and Ninetta Murray and John and Coralee Murray.
