Directions to the trailhead: Great Salt Bay Farm is located at 110 Belvedere Road in Damariscotta, less than half a mile off of Route 1. Coming up Route 1 from the South, pass the main Damariscotta exit and continue for slightly more than 2 miles to the blinking light at Belvedere Road. Take a left on Belvedere and the DRA will be on your left; a white farmhouse opposite a large barn. From the North on 1, after you cross the Damariscotta town line from Nobleboro, continue about a mile to the bottom of the hill and take a right at the blinking light onto Belvedere Road.
Time to meet at the trailhead: 9:00 am
