Pemaquid Pond Preserve consists of a 29-acre preserve as well as a 1.9-acre island on the shore of Pemaquid Pond in Bremen. The preserve was donated to PWA by the Stock-Moody family in 2015, with the intent to allow public enjoyment of this land on the shores of Pemaquid Pond while maintaining its natural state.

Managing organization: Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust

Trail Abstract:

A gentle woodland walk of just over a quarter-mile brings you to the Pemaquid Pond shoreline, boasting broad vistas, rocky outcrops, sandy beaches and wooded shores. Along the shoreline, notice the prime examples of native vegetation that prevents erosion and protects the health of the pond.

Note: The only water access from the pond is at the end of the spur trail and at the island, but not during loon nesting season (mid-May to mid-July).

Directions to Trailhead:

From Business Rt. 1 in Damariscotta, turn onto Biscay Road at the traffic light (by McDonalds). Travel 3 miles and just after Biscay Pond, turn left on to Turner Road. Follow Turner Road, crossing the causeway between Pemaquid Pond & McCurdy Pond, and continue about 0.6 miles. Look for the preserve sign on the left and the small parking lot entrance.
