Crockett Cove Woods

Crockett Cove Woods Professional Review and Guide

"A hike through a foggy, dense forest of spruce and fir in a preserve held by The Nature Conservancy. The drive to Deer Isle is an enjoyable trip by itself. As you leave the mainland, cross the Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge, a high, narrow suspension bridge built in 1939. A causeway brings you to Deer Isle. The roads here are mostly narrow and winding with little sign of commercialism. Most of the residents still make their living from the sea in one way or another.

The hike takes place in a fog forest, a damp but beautiful place where mosses and lichens cover rocks, trees, and the trail itself. The focal point is the Nature Trail, a self-guided interpretive hike. General location: Deer Isle, a relatively unspoiled island between East Penobscot Bay and Jericho Bay in Hancock County."

Only go if you like mossy spruce woods and have no expectation of nice ocean views. The nearby Barred Island trail off Goose Cove Road is far superior, with overlooks of Fredrick Law Olmstead's cottage, Barred Island and Penobscot bay. I found the Crockett Cove woods trail quite boring by comparison.
