Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson is part of Midcoast Conservancy. More than 30 miles of trails and over one mile of shoreline on Little Dyer Pond give visitors access to 1,000 acres of contiguous forest in mid-coast Maine. The trail network connects the pond and peatland with one of the most ecologically diverse and undeveloped roadless tracts of forestland in the region – making it a gem of wilderness in the midst of the rapidly developing Mid-Coast. Bring lunch or a snack.
While we won’t walk the entire preserve, we will explore the unique environment when orchids and pitcher plants should be in bloom.
