Reversing Falls

The powerful currents of the tidal waters filling and draining in Cobscook Bay create a phenomenon the locals know as Reversing Falls. Located at the end of Leighton Point Road, at Mahars Point, Reversing Falls Park is paradise to those who love the sounds of rushing water, the sight of an eagle flying overhead, seals basking on the rocks, and the smell of the fresh salt air.

This is the ideal place for photographers, picnickers, and anyone who appreciates the natural beauty of this area.

Reversing Falls is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
