Along with partners including the State of Maine and the Downeast Coastal Conservancy , MCHT has helped protect dozens of miles of shorefront and numerous hiking trails along Maine's wild and spectacular Bold Coast - a rugged section of coastline between Cutler and Lubec in eastern-most Maine. MCHT owns and stewards more than 3,500 acres on the Bold Coast, including preserves at Boot Head, Bog Brook Cove, Western Head, and Hamilton Cove - all of which provide hiking trails through spruce forest and along cobble beaches and steep cliffs with breath-taking ocean views.
The Trust also helped assemble the protection of the region's largest coastal conservation holding, the 12,234-acre Cutler Coast Unit owned by the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, thanks to funding from the Land for Maine's Future Program.
MCHT continues to work with private landowners and local communities along this stretch of coastline to conserve its unique natural and cultural values.
