The crown jewel of KLT properties, this preserve boasts over 625 acres of land and a 45-acre pond at its center and is ideal for mixed recreational uses. The forested, scrub pine parcel provides habitat to a variety of wildlife, and trails meander through a red pine plantation that was re-vegetated after the fires of 1947. Originally planned as the second phase of Alewive Farms residential development, the property was conserved by the Trust in 1990. Wildflowers are present in the spring, and blueberry picking is allowed in summer.
Kennebunk Land Trust (KLT) was established in 1972. Kennebunk Land Trust’s mission is to permanently conserve and steward land to benefit natural and human communities. Since its inception, the Trust has worked to protect over 3,400 acres of land through ownership, conservation easement and partnership. To find out about volunteer opportunities with the Trust, please contact them using the information below.
Trail Etiquette – while enjoying the preserve, please help us protect their natural resources by keeping these things in mind:
Trail users should be prepared for inclement weather, wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and bring along water and snacks. Southern Maine does have deer ticks that carry Lyme disease; hikers should always perform “tick checks” on themselves and pets following a trip into the woods.
