This summer Blue Hill Heritage Trust closed on an exciting new conservation project at Edgehill in Sargentville.

This parcel is BHHT’s only fee property along Eggemoggin Reach. It was purchased from the Edgehill family, longtime owners and stewards of this place, who wanted to conserve it to ensure public shore access for generations to come, a press release states. The property is a little more than 17 acres and is accessible off Ferry Landing Road.

Visitors to Edgehill will enjoy stunning views of Eggemoggin Reach and Deer Isle-Sedgwick Bridge, and it is an ideal place to launch a kayak, enjoy a picnic, or just sit and watch the boats in the Reach, according to BHHT.

Many community members and foundations helped make this conservation project possible. Fundraising for an accessible walking path and viewing deck are in the works, with a larger goal of a longer accessible trail throughout the property.

Questions about this property or upcoming trail projects can be directed to Blue Hill Heritage Trust at 374-5118.
