Short Trail Leads to Long Views on Sears Island

The Blue Trail on Sears Island, northeast of Belfast, is a fantastic way to take in the views of northern Penobscot Bay. You can see Islesboro, Castine, Cape Rosier, Blue Hill, and many islands in between. There is a rocky beach and a beautiful assortment of spruce and birch trees. Tidal pools are everywhere, as are barnacles, which dominate the immediate shoreline at low tide. On a beautiful early spring day, with not a soul in sight and only the waves crashing, the Blue Trail is a great place to be!
