Carrying Place Bridge

Size: 13 acres

Features: This MCHT property is a popular access point for kayakers wishing to tour Mill River or Winter Harbor. A short trail through mixed woods brings hikers to the shore of Winter Harbor, while hikers with mobility issues may prefer the even shorter trail across the road, where a 50 yard hard-surfaced trail brings you to a bench overlooking Mill River.

Trail: Trail to Winter Harbor shore, 0.3 miles round trip, easy.

Be Aware: 

  • Foot traffic only
  • Stay on marked trails
