Salt Hay Loop at Laudholm Farm

Salt Hay Loop at Laudholm Farm Professional Review and Guide

"Maine’s deep woods are thought of as wild and remote. But there are those who relish exploring the state’s miles of rocky and jagged coastline that parallel the untamed sea. There are places where the snow meets the sea. One such spot is the 7.0 miles of trails at Laudholm Farm at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve. Shoreland, marshes, uplands, and estuarine waters are all part of the 1,600-acre reserve, which is home to wide variety of wildlife, from shorebirds to white-tailed deer.

If ever there was a trail network that guarantees your seeing wildlife, this is it. Even in winter, shorebirds frequent the two estuaries by the saltwater farm. The salt waters of the ocean mingle with the freshwater of the land. Whitetail deer do frequent the area, though they may be too quick for those wanting to capture the moment on film. Fox can be seen. The snow acts as a canvas on which deer leave their imprints. Fresh scat is frequently seen on the trails that wind through the northern-most part of the reserve. Surface quality: Unpacked but skiers make their own tracks."
