Mill Brook Preserve features a 3-mile trail system opened in 2016 on 120 acres of forested land along Mill Brook in Westbrook. Mill Brook is notable for the largest annual migration of alewife fish from Casco Bay to Highland Lake. The fish migration can be seen while hiking along the trail generally in late May and early June. This secluded and hilly forest valley is peaceful and feels remote while just minutes from Maine's largest urban center.

There aren't really any sights on the trails. All trails focus around a small creek. Definitely don't forget your bug spray, there are a lot of mosquitoes/ticks along the trails. I ended up hiking ~5 miles for the exercise, not the sights.

Some really pretty places on this trail. My dog very much enjoyed the swimming! The trails were adequately marked, however, I tried to find a loop trail and couldn't.
