Schoodic Connector Trail Grand Opening
Saturday, July 9 at 9:00 am
Frenchman Bay Conservancy has connected over 1,100 acres of conserved land from Route 1, north to the Down East Sunrise Trail. The conserved land includes the Conservancy’s Baker Hill, Long Ledges, and Schoodic Bog Preserves off of Punkinville Road and Schoodic Bog Road. From the Down East Sunrise Trail, a trail on privately owned land leads to the top of Schoodic Mountain. The Schoodic Mountain Trail leads down the other side of the mountain on the Donnell Pond Public Reserved Land. Schoodic’s summit is bare and flat with 360 degree views, including dramatic views over Frenchman Bay and Mount Desert Island. The Donnell Pond Public Reserved Land includes more than 14,000 acres of remote forested land with crystal clear lakes, secluded ponds, and mountains with panoramic views. This public land includes miles of trails traversing Black, Caribou, and Tunk Mountains.
