Salt Bay Preserve

Salt Bay Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"Take a walk to one of the oldest archaeological sites in Maine—the Glidden Shell Midden on the banks of the Damariscotta River. Here prehistoric tribes piled oyster shells along the shore after consuming their meats.

Your hike starts along boardwalks astride Great Salt Bay. Wind through pine and hardwood forests, gaining views of the estuarine waters. View an old sheep tunnel and then reach the Glidden Midden. View the shells and complete your loop, passing a tidal marsh and a freshwater pond."
