Our partner in conservation, Freeport Conservation Trust, has granted us access to the Tidebrook property that overlooks the Harraseeket River. Join us for a scenic walk into this gorgeous setting and position yourself to take the ultimate picture to enter our photo contest. Small prizes will be awarded to the 3 best images, details furnished to event participants at event. Only images captured at this event will be considered by our jury. A digital submission box address will be provided to participants.
At this lovely 44-acre preserve, start your walk at the kiosk next to the orchard. The red, yellow and blue trails, which are loosely marked by colored arrows, loop through the woods to the west, go down to the marsh in the center, and along the shore of the Harraseeket to the east. Tidebrook is open during daylight hours spring, summer and fall. Pets are not allowed.
Directions: From Route 1 by the Freeport Public Safety Building, turn east onto West Street. West Street becomes Torrey Hill Range Road, which runs over a steep hill, and then becomes Bartol Island Road after it crosses Lower Mast Landing Road. Follow Bartol Island Road, continuing for 0.25 mile after the pavement ends, park on the left before some tall cedars.
