A one-acre wooded property is bounded by a beautiful brook with moss-covered rocks. Water at shore is shallow with mud bottom. Can be used to access ice in winter.

Among other conservation values, this property, along with our Snow’s Cove Preserve, helps protect horseshoe crab breeding habitat, which is rare in Maine. Of special interest is number of horseshoe crab shells scattered throughout woods of both properties.
