The crown jewel of Kennebunk Land Trust 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; 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. Blueberry picking in summer, some wildflowers present in spring.

Lovely trail with a little mix of terrain.

Great trail. We came across three other people but it was mostly secluded and very relaxing, peaceful. Trails are well kept and the walk is easy for all ages. Dog loved the place too.

Limited views of the pond but I'd imagine it's easier to see in the winter with less brush.

Will be back!

This was an incredibly easy place to find and a wonderful place to trail run with a dog. The trails are clearly marked and kept clear. My only wish was that there was a better way of getting into the pond other than trucking through deep mud once you've reached it.

Nice, but buggy. Our kids weren't all that interested in the scenery. Maybe in this part of the region it's better to stay near the water?

Very easy hike, by no means is this a moderate hike. Well marked, heavily wooded- only view is when you reach the pond.

The trail is beautiful! Sadly I went the day after it rained and got eaten up by mosquitos

There are a few bridges over brooks that can't be passed easily on bike. Good trail, mostly flat with a lot of roots.

This trail is located in Lyman/Kennebunk not Alewife, lol. It's right down the road from my house and such a nice little walk! Great for snowshoeing or just walking. A few different trails/routes available. Love this place!

East to follow trails crossing and joining other 4WD trails. The pond is the destination and looks good for fishing. Dog friendly.
