Wet spring conditions mean that the gate at the Don Fish Road leading to the Dead River and Mountain trailheads is sometimes closed.
When this is the case, park in the Fish Hatchery parking lot. Thank you!

Explore Outdoors

Our Explore Outdoors! program, operated by GPMCT and Downeast Audubon to facilitate children’s learning and exploration of the natural world, is on hold until we have worked out how to work with schools during the pandemic. The website has many nature-based activities you and your family can enjoy indoors or outdoors close to home, but has not been updated since June.
