Butler Preserve, Kennebunk


  • Preserve Size: 14 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .6 miles one way
  • Pets: yes

Butler Preserve is a mini-walk, a little more than half a mile one way, along the Kennebunk River. The Kennebunk Land Trust trail takes you to some rocky ledges over a deep part of the river, and when I visited in May, 2016, two teenagers were jumping in! The trail follows the river until it ends at Ledgewater Drive.

Directions: Access is from Old Port Road near the corner of Rivers Edge Drive; parking is limited.


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