Harpswell Cliff Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This scenic loop hike features lovely cliff-top views over tidal Long Reach and a fairy house village. Cliff Trail is located on 205 acres of Harpswell town property assembled in
three purchases between 1978 and 2002 and bounded by Strawberry Creek, Henry’s Marsh, Long Reach, and Mountain Road.
Though originally intended for affordable housing, municipal buildings, recreation, and conservation, the land’s ridges, cliffs, streams, and wetlands made the property unsuitable
for development. While the portion of land fronting on Mountain Road was eventually developed, the remaining acreage was preserved for low-impact recreation and wildlife habitat."
