This gem of a walking path starts at Route 130 just south of the Bristol Consolidated School, leads back to the Pemaquid River estuary, then returns to the highway just north of the school near Lupine Road. It is about .75 miles long long and is an easy 30-minute walk. There is a short segment on school property that was designed to be handicap accessible. Preserve signs adjacent to Route 130 are posted at both ends of the trail.

The trail features beautiful views of the tidal Pemaquid River, a brook flowing through a very rocky bed, some of the largest and oldest red oaks around, and fine old stone walls.
