Wow. THE TRAIL IS BACK!!!! I've been going here for years in winter, just to see Mt. Washington on clear days. The views of Saco Bay are awesome, and the rocky shore is as good as any in Maine. But in recent years the trail had become essentially impassable. It was grown over with huge thorn bushes, poison sumac, poison ivy, brambles, etc. You could not walk all the way to the end, and people have obviously created several herd paths throughout the property. But Audubon has slowly been clearing the trail all winter, and it is now a showpiece! It loops all the way to the end before the mouth of The Gut, and meanders bcd toward the Chapel without going over the neighboring houses' property. Thank you Audubon for investing so much in this treasure! You had neglected the East Point Trail for so long, I thought it was lost forever.
Overgrown near the end and definitely a lot of poison ivy. Easy trail with lovely views of ahistorical lighthouse and good ocean breezes.
