Castine Forests

Witherle Woods Preserve is currently part of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Throughout its history it has been used by the French, Dutch, English and Americans as a trading post, a site for forts and missions and agricultural activities. This little copse witnessed military action in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. You can find the remains of this history as you wander through the woods.

Witherle Woods was beautiful. The hike was invigorating, but not exhausting. All of us enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to others. Just look a Freckles beaming! For more information, check out this site.
