Little Long Pond, Natural Lands
and COVID-19

Little Long Pond and our natural lands continue to remain open from dawn to dusk. The Preserve is pleased that we can continue to provide access for “essential activities” as defined by Governor Mills’ executive order. 

When visiting Little Long Pond, please remember:

  • If you are traveling to Maine from a non-exempt state, you must either self-quarantine for 14 days or receive a negative COVID test. Exempt states are New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

  • All visitors are required to carry a mask at all times and be prepared to wear one when physical distancing cannot be maintained.

  • Stay at least six feet apart. Step off trails to let others pass.

  • Park only in designated areas. If all parking areas are taken, please come back later.

  • Keep your dog on a leash and near your side if it cannot be recalled by your voice commands.

  • Pick up your dog’s waste and deposit it in the nearest receptacle. There is a receptacle just inside of the Bracy Cove gate and another at the northern Boathouse/eastern carriage road intersection. Please do not drop dog waste bags along the side of any carriage road or trail. If you are not near a receptacle, please pack out your dog’s waste.

  • No restroom facilities are available; please plan ahead. 

  • No bicycles are permitted.

  • The lower carriage road leading from the main gate to the Boathouse has been closed due to re-seeding but is now open to visitors. We ask that only people and dogs use this road for now, and that horses continue to use the upper carriage roads.
