    Long Cove Rest Area

    A scenic location where the tides reveal a banquet of clams, muscles and other marine life. On the shoreline you will find rocks bearing deep markings, called striations, from glaciers that retreated from this location more than ten thousand years ago.

    Visitors will find picnic tables, a grill, a privy and interpretive panels.

    A short climb up Tucker Mountain begins across the road from here. Round trip is one mile with some sections of the trail being rocky. Long Cove Picnic Area brings you close to the tides. This cove, like many on the coast of Maine, is a center of production for marine wildlife.
