Mendall Marsh Professional Review and Guide
"A hike through the 371-acre Howard Mendall Wildlife Management Area, a salt marsh bounded by a tidal river. Waterfowl, shorebirds, and an active bald eagle nest. General location: Along U.S. Highway 1A just south of the village of Frankfort in Waldo County. This hike is exciting because of its unstructured nature. You determine where and how far you will go. Follow the dirt road to where it ends at a gravel pad surrounded by large granite boulders. Here, at the riverside, you can look up and down theshore, getting a good idea of the expanse of the marsh. The ground on both sides of the road is quite firm, so you might want to explore some of the Penobscot Penobscot River Rivertidal pools on either side."
