What to do in Moose Point State Park

Moose Point State Park is located on US 1 between Belfast and Searsport. The park is a relaxing get away from the busy, populated area. Visitors enjoy exploring the evergreen forest, tidal pools and viewing the beautiful Penobscot Bay. There is a short ocean-side trail which takes about 10 minutes to walk. Or you may choose to loop around to the interior of the park and this takes about 25 minutes to walk.

This park is not necessarily a "destination spot" for the traveler but rather a nice place to get off the road and relax a few minutes. Clean restrooms and sunny picnic tables are located beside the small parking lot. Interestingly, there is a bike rack, but bikes are not permitted on the trails. However, Rt. 1 has a bike lane.

Moose Point State Park offers 183 acres of bayside land for relaxing, picnicking and sight seeing. The park is located on US 1 between Belfast and Searsport.
