This month’s Coastal Mountains Land Trust (CMLT) Hike-the-Guide outing will take place Saturday, September 15, from 9 to 11 a.m. at Mount Percival Preserve (pictured) in Northport. The preserve’s trail makes a gradual climb to the summit (elevation 410 feet), where the foundation of an early rusticator’s tower and cistern remain. The hike is an approximately one-mile round trip and is open to all ages and abilities. Emai info@coastalmountains.org to register so that CMLT can notify participants if the hike is cancelled due to inclement weather. Directions: from Lincolnville Beach, take Route 1 north 4.9 miles, taking a slight right onto Shore Road; continue 1 mile as it turns into Pound Hill Road, then turn right at the fork onto Upper Bluff Road; continue for one-half mile to preserve entrance on the left, across from the mailbox marked 220 Upper Bluff Road. Park along the road.  photo by Heather Pusey
