Visiting the wetland
There is easy access to this wetland via Route 1, five minutes north of Wiscassett, at the Maine DOT rest stop. You can access the marsh inlet/outlet and tidal creek under the Route 1 bridge by walking along the access road that parallels Route 1. At the top of the bridge you can access the old town road that leads to an old bridge crossing of the west arm of the marsh. At low tide you can walk across the hard-packed bottom and access the hiking trails beyond.
