While Maine is famous for its rugged coastline, from June to September many of the most scenic spots are overrun with visitors. To the contrary, the 12,000 acre Cutler Coast Public Reserve, located along Maine’s less traveled Bold Coast, offers crowd-free viewing of nearly 5 miles of ocean scenery as spectacular as any other stretch in Maine and beyond. Protected by the state in the 1990s with the help of Maine Coast Heritage Trust and the Land for Maine’s Future Program, the Cutler Coast is a land of rugged, rocky cliffs where cool temperatures sail in on refreshing sea breezes even during the hottest weeks of the summer. The reserve offers hikers two loop options, a 5.8-mile and a 10-mile journey, as well as three primitive campsites for overnight adventures. Whether half-day, full-day, or multiple-day, a sojourn to the Cutler Coast is a memorable opportunity to spot whales, moose, and countless species of birds.
