Join us at Chebeague Island’s Deer Point to explore Maine’s Rocky Coast.
This nature walk will be scheduled for a 9:00 am start due to the Chebeague Transportation Company’s ferry schedule. Mainland participants will take the bus from the CTC parking lot at 7:45 am and board the 8:15 ferry to the island. Transportation to the trailhead at Deer Point will be provided, and participants will be back to the ferry to depart on the noon boat.
With a strip of gray ledge separating its thatch of dark spruce from the ocean, Deer Point is reminiscent of a typical downeast Maine island. It is a wild place, exposed to the open ocean, and it has been a favorite spot for picnics for generations. Thanks to the generosity of its owner this spot will stay in its wild and scenic condition and be accessible to the public forever.
