Knight’s Pond Preserve (Bruce and Blueberry Hills), Cumberland

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: ~289 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~4.5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: 46-acre pond, forest, FAA tower

The trails in Cumberland, Falmouth, and Windham are very well connected, either by footpath or snowmobile trail. In my map above, Knight’s Pond Preserve is in light blue; Farwell Forest in lavender; Rines Forest in green; Hadlock Forest in maroon; Falmouth Town Forest trails in dark blue; Falmouth Community Park in yellow; Blackstrap Preserve in orange. Not shown on this map are the connected trails of North Falmouth Community Forest, Greely Woods, and Lowell Preserve.

Here is my attempt at a map that roughly shows the multi-town interconnected trail system.

The trail system here is well marked, with maps posted at every intersection. The views from Blueberry Hill are pretty, and Knight’s Pond is a popular spot for ice skating. You’ll be able to hear the FAA tower when you’re close by — it makes a low whirring sound.

Directions: The main lot is off the Greeley Road Extension. From the intersection with Route 9, drive about 1.23 miles and you’ll see a large parking lot on your right. The trail system starts from the back corner of the lot.
