East Point Audubon Sanctuary
Situated at the very end of Biddeford Pool (Fletcher Neck) among private residences and a private golf course, East Point Audubon Sanctuary contains a short but spectacular trail along the perimeter of the point, offering rare public access to this stretch of the Maine Coast.
A short out-and-back walk provides views of Wood Island’s light house, the rocky shore, and coastal habitat against the backdrop of both Saco Bay and the Gulf of Maine. Bring binoculars for water and shore birds, find a sitting spot – there are benches along the path – and enjoy the spectacular views.

Parking is very limited at the end of Lester B. Orcutt Blvd. along the shoulder with room for about 6 cars. The entrance is marked on the left as you face the water. There is a short right of way trail between and around private residences which takes you to the main sanctuary trail.
We ask visitors to be respectful of all adjoining private land owners and the golf club while visiting this spectacular little sanctuary. Please also be mindful of the path and possible eroded embankments, especially if you choose to veer onto the rocks at your own risk.
