Scarborough Marsh is 3,000 acres of Tidal Estuary belonging to the State of Maine under the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, with a visitor center and trails operated by the Maine Audubon Society. It is a great location for spotting migrating ducks, shorebirds and songbirds.
A new bridge has been built over the gas pipeline that crosses the Scarborough River and it is now permissible to cross the bridge. Bridge use was restricted before. Now, it’s very popular for jogging and walking. There is a parking area near the bridge access.
The Scarborough River, Nonesuch River and Libby River form a confluence just before the narrows between Pine Point Beach and Ferry Beach near Prouts Neck. The river here is very swift, especially at tide changes.
