Hike Distance?

The Mayan Bird letterbox started its life as a hitchhiker. After traveling around the country, it has decided to make its roost in the Linekin Preserve, a 94.6 acre parcel of land on Route 96 in East Boothbay. The get to Linekin Preserve Take Route 96 from Route 27 in Boothbay Harbor and follow for 3.8 miles. The parking area is on the left, marked by a small white sign. If you get to the Linekin Bay Bed & Breakfast you have gone too far! If you'd like, stop at the East Boothbay General Store for snacks and drinks. The preserve is about 1.2 miles from the General Store.

At the parking area, pick up a trail map at the kiosk. While not necessary, it will be helpful. This trail is well marked and posted with maps every so often, so if there are no trail maps don't worry!

Walk along the trail, passing all the neat rock formations on your left. Not too far ahead you’ll see the first diamond shaped metal trail marker, nailed to a tree. It says BRLT on it and has an arrow. At this point you can turn right or stay straight. Stay straight on the path.

Continue on the path until you see the first tree with a white blaze on it, on your right hand side. If you get to the sign post, you have gone too far! It’s only a short distance away. At the base of this tree you’ll find a rock. Inspect the base of this rock well, to find your prize.

Rehide well, please; this is very close to the trail. Remember not to leave trash behind too!
