Pleasant Point Nature Preserve
Miles of trail: 1.5
Activities: Hiking, birding, hunting
Nestled between Pleasant Point Road and Stones Point Road, the property features a mixed woodland and significant wetlands. This community gem is a popular walking destination.
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.
The Pleasant Point Nature Preserve is open to the public for day-use only; no overnight camping is allowed. Hunting is permitted with prior permission. 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).
