Penobscot Shore Trail in Prospect, where a guided hike will take place July 21, 9 to 11 a.m.

Prospect — Join Coastal Mountains Land Trust for its monthly Hike-the-Guide outing Saturday, July 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Penobscot Shore Preserve.

This is the land trust's newest and most northern preserve, and the only one to offer access to the Penobscot River. The hike is open to all ages and abilities. Email info@coastalmountains.org to register for this free event.

Directions: From Belfast, drive north toward the Penobscot Narrows Bridge, but turn left at the lights onto Route 174 before the bridge. In 1.4 miles, turn right onto Bowden Point Road. The preserve is on the right in 1.1 miles, 100 yards before Worcester’s Lobster Bait. There is pull-in parking for three cars; others can park along the road.

Hike-the-Guide is a series of monthly guided outings on land trust preserves listed in its Trail Guide. Held on the third Saturday of each month, the explorations are open to all ages and abilities. Take the Hike-the-Guide Challenge: visit 12 or more preserves by April 30, 2019, and receive an LL Bean backpack. Record your visits on the checklist at the back of Land Trust Trail Guide or download the checklist from the land trust's website.
