Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) Team Works to Improve Trails

An MCC team of 6 people spent two weeks on the island working to improve the
trails around Hockamock Head. Some tricky sections of the trails are much
improved, and they also got started on the final loop back from Burying Point
Beach to the summit parking area. Thanks to the anonymous donor who
provided funds to support the team, and to the team members, who did a
fantastic job! Also to all who provided support and hospitality, including a group
of strong young volunteers who helped move a big pile of crushed stone from the
parking lot to the work area.

What Visitors Have To Say

You truly have a treasure…. perched out here atop the rocks with the vast sea at the doorstep…. we watched a bright moon spilling its light onto the water, listening to the music of the waves, and wondering anew at the stars emerging in the dark sky….

We are fortunate to have traveled to many places in this world, but still contend, by far, this is the prettiest place on earth. Stay in the keeper's house - you will not be disappointed!!!! It is special.

This has been a lifetime experience! The beauty of Swan’s Island can’t be described in words or photographs, for they just don’t do it justice….I look forward to coming back again next year!

We just stayed there and it is tremendous. The view and setting is amazing. The quality of the Keeper's house (2nd floor) is excellent. It is fresh, well decorated and spacious.

I cannot express the gratitude I have for all of the dedication and hard work that has been given to the restoration of such a beautiful Light House.

The apartment, the weather, the people, the beach, the trails and especially the views have been exceptional.

Sunrises and sunsets are stunning, punctuated by the parade of lobster and sail boats.
