Stetser Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Blue Trail is a self-guided nature trail that explains the natural history of the preserve. The Red Trail climbs a low hill with several large blueberry patches, then descends to a pond where beaver can be seen. The hike passes through several different forest types with the opportunity to see lots of different wildflowers in season.

Maine’s Mid-Coast is one of the most convoluted coastlines in
the United States. Hundreds of miles of shoreline are packed
into a compact arch of coast between the mouths of the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers. The region is characterized
by long, narrow peninsulas and islands bounded by equally
narrow bays—often called rivers. This landscape is a result of
the underlying bedrock."
