The Medomak Valley Land Trust will host a snowshoe/hike on its Burkett Mill Preserve on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 10 a.m.

Burkett Mill, MVLT’s largest preserve, has several miles of trails that wind around streams and bogs and up over small hills. This will be a very scenic winter snowshoe, but it could be strenuous depending upon the snow pack and weather conditions.

The Burkett Mill preserve is mostly forested with substantial wetlands that serve as the headwaters for Farnsworth brook; it occupies 362 acres between Finntown and Friendship roads. The preserve has the distinction of being within the largest roadless area on a coastal peninsula between the Camden Hills and York. Burkett Mill is open to the public year round for low-impact recreation including hiking, hunting, skiing and snowshoeing.

To get to Burkett Mill, from Waldoboro Village, head north on Main Street and veer right onto Old Route One. At the end of this road, turn right onto Goshen Road. Stay on Goshen Road for 1.8 miles, and stay straight on the unpaved Burkett Mill Road where Goshen Road curves sharply left. Parking for the preserve is located on the left, .3 miles down the road.
