      The Bold Coast Scenic Byway provides an opportunity to experience the unique beauty, culture, history, and recreational opportunities of Downeast Maine and Coastal Washington County. From beginning to end, the Bold Coast Scenic Byway is characterized by rocky coastlines teeming with seabirds and seals, sparkling harbors bustling with lobster-, scallop-, and ground-fishing boats, colorful beaches riddled with tide pools to explore, mysterious fog banks enshrouding the dense coastal forests, panoramic blueberry barrens glowing blue in summer and red in fall, glorious sunrises and sunsets, and a dark night sky brilliant with stars.

      Summer festivals and community celebrations celebrate sea creatures and fisher-folk, local arts and crafts, blueberries and seafood, music and dance, and international and native cultural traditions. Museums showcase the maritime and agricultural heritage as well as traditional Passamaquoddy basket making, canoe building, jewelry making, woodcarving, and storytelling.

      Maritime heritage including lobster fishing, boat building, salmon fishing, and the sardine industry; wild blueberry agriculture; native American history, culture, and art; historic architecture; undisturbed natural beauty, diverse wildlife, dramatic coastline, dark night skies, and pristine waterways; fall foliage; visible glacial influences; solitude and relaxation; year-round recreation including fishing, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, swimming, kayaking, and 4-wheeling.
      Cutler Coast Public Reserve Land is on what is known as the Bold Coast. For more information about the unique geology of the area and features along the trail, check out the Bold Coast on Maine Geological Survey's website.

      The trail system follows many clifftops presenting hazards to those who follow too closely especially in wet or foggy conditions. Be prepared for drastic weather changes and be aware that there is very spotty cell coverage along the trails.
