An outstanding tract comprised of one town-owned and two trust-owned properties totaling nearly 80 acres. The trail threads through upland forest and fern beds, and crosses a brook and streams leading to the banks of the Kennebunk River near the head of tides. This quiet preserve is a picturesque oasis. Pileated woodpecker, warblers, and other birds are abundant during migration.
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.
