the Peninsula Line
Visitors to Maine's jagged coast quickly learn that it takes longer than you might expect to drive between towns on neighboring peninsulas. What appears on a map to be a short trip "as the crow flies" can easily become a long and circuitous adventure: first you head inland along one long peninsula, then down along several miles of US Highway 1, and finally out along the next long peninsula.
The DRT's Peninsula Line radically alters the geometry of downeast travel by connecting its peninsulas with straight-line underground routes. A trip that previously took more than an hour by car (for example, from Corea to Cape Split) now takes just ten minutes on the subway.
Station entrance: On the east side of Goods Point Road, about ¼ mile from Dyer Bay Road.

Like nearby Pigeon Hill, McClellan Park is one of this area's hidden gems of spectacular natural beauty. Its rugged granite cliffs tumble down to meet the pounding surf at the mouth of Milbridge's Narraguagus Bay. It is a perfect spot for picnics, tidepooling, or painting — or just sitting quietly and gazing out into the endless expanse of the North Atlantic.
Station entrance: On Tom Leighton Point Road, at the corner of Watchtide Landing. From here it's about a 15 minute walk to the park entrance.

Nestled in a quiet cove in the tidal estuary of Milbridge's Flat Bay, Ray's Point station is a tranquil waypoint along one of the DRT's busiest subway lines. Here shorebirds gather at low tide to wade in the fertile mud flats from which Flat Bay gets its name. At high tide an occasional seal will make the daring trip into these shallow waters to bask briefly in the shelter of the cove, before gliding back out to sea with the falling tide. Perhaps even seals need respite now and then from the hustle and bustle of open oceanic life. Like their human counterparts, they know that Ray's Point station is a welcome place to take a little breather.

Lubec lies at a remarkable geographical crossroads.

Or make a day of it by strolling through downtown Lubec, sampling the area's shops and fine seafood eateries.

During your visit, allow plenty of time to explore the new (2017) granite sculpture on Water Street, overlooking the Narrows, dedicated to the memory of Lubec fishermen who lost their lives at sea. This poignant memorial invites quiet reflection that can provide welcome relief during a long journey.
