Bridle Path, Kennebunk


  • Preserve Size: 37 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~ 3 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Mousam River, old train bed, salt marsh, history panels

This is a straight-ish, wide path, good for bicycling, that starts close to Sea Road School (actually, a little north of the school, at the railroad tracks) and ends up, about 3 miles later, close to the beach. The most beautiful section is between Route 9 and Sea Road, where you can walk along a little berm across the marsh. This trail connects two small Kennebunk Land Trust preserves, Madelyn Marx Preserve and Sea Road Preserve.

Take care to stick to the marked trail and respect local landowners’ properties! 

Directions: There is a little parking area on Route 9. You can also park at the Sea Road School. Please don’t park on Tideview Terrace.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
