Reynolds Marsh Parking Area


Parking for only about 6 cars. Overnight parking is available, but have a backup plan if the area is full.

A short trail leads from the parking area to the hand carry access.

Reynolds Marsh Launch provides water access for canoes and kayaks. Orange River Landing Hand Launch is close enough to offer an easy one-way or round-trip paddle between them.


From the North, take US Route 1 to Whiting. Go 3 miles past the Route 189 turn-off. The parking lot will be on your right.

From the South, take Route 1 10.2 miles past the Route 191 turn-off in East Machias. Look for the parking lot on the left.

Several day-use sites are ideal pullouts to stop for lunch or to watch for wildlife.

Orange River Landing is about 2.5 miles downstream from Reynolds Marsh Overlook.

Please note that the Orange River is dammed to provide optimal habitat. Paddlers should expect higher water in the spring and early summer and lower water levels in late summer and fall. The beavers are quite active on the Orange River and their dams may span the width of the waterway at times.

The Estey Mountain hiking trail is relatively easy with a short steep pitch at the end. Access the trail by paddling to the trailhead shown on the map.
