Eastern Knubble Trail
Cutler, Maine

Home > Seacoast > Eastern Knubble Trail in Cutler, Maine


The wooded promontories of Eastern Knubble and Western Head enclose the entrance to the harbor of Cutler, Maine village. The Eastern Knubble, of approximately 30 acres, was acquired by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) several years ago.

This trail travels along the shoreline of the northern shore of Little River in Cutler, Maine. The path is well-maintained and exists on a plot of land that is densely wooded. The summit of Eastern Knubble rises to 151 feet; however the trail sticks to the shoreline. There is no marked path to the summit. The village center of Cutler is 2.6 miles away. To the south of Eastern Knubble one can see across the Little River the Western Head Preserve (another Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserve).
