Hike Date: December 6, 2017
Land Trust: Boothbay Region Land Trust
Leader’s name: Tracey Hall
Hike name or Preserve: Porter Preserve
Length in miles: 1.5 miles- we are doing a shorter walk as our longer trails still have blow downs from the windstorm a few weeks ago. Porter Preserve is small but has a thick spruce forest with regular water vistas, making for an enchanting and enjoyable walk. http://www.bbrlt.org/porter-preserve/
Difficulty (easy, moderate or strenuous): easy
