Jagolinzer Preserve

The 20-acre Jagolinzer Preserve in Limington offers an easy walk to enjoy a beautiful brook, waterfall, old dam, wetlands, forest, and frontage on the Saco River.
Trail Activity
0.50 miles, Loop
Dirt/Forest Floor


To enter the 20-acre preserve, go 250 feet down the right-of-way on Olives Way (as described under Trailhead), and at the sign, angle to the left and walk an additional 500 feet. A stonewall marks the boundary line of the property. A signpost points to the loop path. Small wooden signs with a turtle logo mark the trail. It takes approximately 45 minutes to walk the loop trail that passes the old dam, Pease Brook, and the Saco River, and then returns through the woods.

Other Information

The Jagolinzer Preserve is available during daylight hours for hiking, nature study, and other low-impact activities such as cross-country skiing. If you picnic in the preserve, please carry out your trash and leave the flora and fauna as you find it. Motor and wheeled vehicles are not allowed in the preserve at any time (except for mobility access). The Jagolinzer Preserve is surrounded by private property, so please be considerate of the neighbors. Hunting is allowed, so dress appropriately during hunting season. Please keep your pets under control.

Trailhead Information

The Jagolinzer Preserve is located in Limington on the north side of ME Route 25 just east of the Cornish town line and 0.5 mile west of the junction of ME Routes 25 and 117 at Olives Way. A sign at Olives Way marks the start of the right-of-way to the preserve. Visitors to the Preserve can drive down Olives Way and park of on the left just before the sign and path that are 250 feet down Olives Way. That is private land, and Olives Way is access to private homes, so please do not obstruct that road. Please do not park there when the ground is soft in mud season.

We did this trail a few weeks ago. Loved the waterfall area! Great family-friendly hike!

I went back in November and it was a little cold and wet but other than that a good walk. The leaf litter can make things slippery, so watch your step on your way down to the water.

I just went at 5/29/14 1512 and it was beautiful wooded trail, as well as a beautiful waterfall great photo opportunity. Be advised of heavy heavy mosquitoes and pestery bugs to the point you can't stand in one place longer than a second with out getting swammed.

04/28/2014: ebinmaine: "I went today at about 4 P.M. The water level is receding quickly. If you get to the site of the bridge, turn left and go about 100 feet or so and you can jump the small creek even with limited ability. I was able to continue around the complete loop without getting my shoes wet. The water fall near the old dam is stunning, and deserves many visits."
