Ingersoll Point

A splendid diversity of mosses and lichens carpet and encrust the forest floor across the 145-acre Ingersoll Point Preserve.

A 3.5 mile trail network provides an opportunity to explore an alluring forest bordering 1.6 miles of wild shoreline along Carrying Place Cove and Wahoa Bay. Around 190 plant species have been identified at Ingersoll Point which provides an inspiring setting for nature observation and study. The property has long provided access to the nearby clam flats as well as a variety of daytime recreational activities including hiking, hunting, fishing, and snowshoeing. This preserve was acquired with the support of the Land for Maine’s Future program and the North American Wetlands Conservation Act in 2009.
