Thorne Head Preserve

Blackburnian Warbler
Thorne Head Preserve is protected by the Lower Kennebec River Land Trust. Tall pines that grew here in the colonial era were destined to become masts in the King’s navy. After extensive logging, the area became pasture land. Stonewalls still wind through the woods. Today, the regenerated forest consists of white pine, hemlock, and oak, interspersed by vernal pools and freshwater marshes. The preserve provides a pleasant short hike for canopy warblers and vireos, especially Blackburnian Warblers.
Directions: From downtown Bath, follow High Street north 2 miles to the end.
