The new trail at Woodward Cove received some press recently, courtesy of Elizabeth Clemente at The Forecaster.
Woodward Cove, a property the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust purchased two years ago to preserve mud-flat access for wormers and clammers, has a new walking trail.
The new trail runs through the organization’s property on Gurnet Road.
Stewards from both BTLT and the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust were responsible for creating the new path and cut the winding, lollipop-shaped route. It is just under a half-mile long and gives hikers views of hills and apple trees.
Margaret Gerber, stewardship manager for BTLT, said the trail was completed at the end of July, and is open, but her organization will not likely have a formal opening celebration for the property at this time because it does not yet have signs or a kiosk.
Gerber said in addition to giving visitors views of local scenery, the new path will also maintain a space for fishermen to work.
