Sears Island Professional Review and Guide

"A hike around an uninhabited island connected to the mainland by a causeway. The walk around Sears Island is actually a walking tour of the upper bay, since you get to look at area landmarks from every direction.

Because of easy access, this is a popular hike with local residents. All the same, few bother to hike completely around the whole island. General location: Northern Penobscot Bay near Searsport in Waldo County."

"Sears Island has been used by humans for centuries, and in the last century all kinds of development schemes threatened the island. But today most of it is protected by a conservation easement.

The hike goes through the protected lands along mostly flat trails. You have opportunities to see and hike through a large number of habitat types. The hike can be altered to take in some of the numerous unmarked trails that criss-cross the island or a walk along the rocky shore."
