Pleasant Point Nature Preserve

In 2008, we acquired the 65-acre Pleasant Point Nature Preserve in Cushing through the generous donation of a group of 25 families. They worked for a dozen years to purchase several adjacent lots of land on the lower Cushing peninsula. Nestled between Pleasant Point Road and Stone’s Point Road, the property features a mixed woodland and significant wetlands.

Public Access

The Pleasant Point Nature Preserve is open to the public for day-use only; no overnight camping is allowed. Hunting is permitted. There is a 1.5-mile trail system with a scenic 250-foot-long raised boardwalk.

Directions to the Property

From Route 1 in Thomaston, head south on Route 97 toward Cushing. Travel for 6.8 miles and turn left onto Salt Pond Road. Continue for 1.4 miles and turn right onto Pleasant Point Road. After 2.2 miles, turn left onto Stone’s Point Road. (Ignore the first sign for Stone’s Point Road. It is a loop that intersects with Pleasant Point Road twice. You want the lower intersection.) Parking is available in a small, grassy area on the left on Stone’s Point Road, just after turning off from Pleasant Point Road (see map).
