- Cutler Coast Public Reserved Land has over 2,000 acres on Washington County's "Bold Coast." Visitors enjoy the five miles of dramatic cliff-bound ocean shore. Interior lowlands are characterized with stunted spruce, heaths and grasslands. Several entrances include an unmarked rough road that travels northeast from the small town of Cutler and ends at an entrance gate. Also, heading north of town is another unmarked road branching into lands severed by Ackley Stream and other small brooks. More difficult to find, is the spot northeast along SR 191 approximately 1 - 2 miles from Cutler. A small trail entrance offers access to the ground between the state road and the Atlantic Ocean. All entries lead to very remote and desolate public hunting, fishing and exploration lands.
Recreation - A network of hiking trails follows a figure eight pattern lying between several coves on the Grand Manan Channel and SR 191. The views are spectacular and serene in this quiet removed spot. Several primitive campsites are located immediately south of Long Point Cove and Black Point Brook. The sites are ocean side. Visible from the campsites is Little River Lighthouse that rests on Little River Island. This lighthouse was originally constructed in 1847. It was rebuilt in 1975 consisting primarily of cast iron and brick with a granite foundation. Also located on this island is a brick oil house, circa 1905.
Hunting and trapping are allowed, subject to state rules and regulations. Call 207-287-3821 for specific policies and laws regarding these activities.
