Can’t-Miss Fall Foliage at 4 Nearby Parks

Midcoast Maine’s fall foliage hasn’t peaked yet as we move into the first week of October here at Linekin Bay Resort. There’s still time to explore our lush forestry with a weekend getaway to Boothbay Harbor, one of the prettiest towns in coastal Maine. Every autumn, guests witness the region’s colorful transformation to bright yellow, burnt orange, and scarlet. Coastal Maine’s vibrant complexion enhances the serene Midcoast Maine experience. For decades, wary urbanites have escaped crowded cities for a week of seclusion, relaxation, and rejuvenation at Linekin Bay. Many of our guests take to the sea on an autumn sailing expedition, while many others believe our parks are the perfect place to unwind. There is an endless amount of things to do in Maine. We feel a trip to Boothbay Harbor isn’t complete without an afternoon in the great outdoors. When you’re not roasting marshmallows, kayaking in the bay, or enjoying fresh seafood at The Deck Bar & Grill, embark on a fall adventure through one of these four nearby parks.

Reid State Park

Reid State Park has a unique ecosystem that’s worth visiting during every season, especially fall. The park has lengthy, sandy beaches, metamorphic rock formations, sweeping overlooks, tranquil meadows, and colorful forestry. It doesn’t hurt that the 37-mile journey from Linekin Bay Resort to Reid State Park is one of the prettiest fall drives in Midcoast Maine.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse

The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, as beautiful as it is, is the second-best feature on the historic property. After a short stroll from the lighthouse, you’ll discover a jaw-dropping metamorphic and igneous bedrock beach that has been distorted by erosion. The surrounding wilderness provides the perfect backdrop for visiting nature photographers. For those who are returning from a visit to this magnificent lighthouse, be sure to stop at Pemaquid Beach for a short stroll and a picnic.

Popham Beach State Park

This state park is home to one of the largest beaches in Maine. Popham Beach State Park is the ideal place for nature enthusiasts who love to explore the unknown. Venture out onto Morse Point for a long look at the Fox Islands before exploring Fort Baldwin and Popham. If you walk the beach long enough, you’ll also discover distant Pond Island Lighthouse.

Barrett’s Park

This small Boothbay Harbor park provides quiet views of beautiful Linekin Bay. While not visible from Linekin Bay Resort, Barrett’s Park is a little more than a stone’s throw from our waterfront property. Barrett’s Park isn’t going to wow anyone upon arrival, but it’s a peaceful location for a morning dog walk or an afternoon picnic. The colors that enclose the cove are incredibly vibrant during fall’s peak.
