Cambridge Woodlands Preserve, Cambridge


  • Preserve Size: 90 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.4 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: meadow, forest, stream

After leaving your car at the grassy parking area, which also has some exposed ledge, you’ll walk down a wide, grassy trail to a small meadow. When I visited this Sebasticook Regional Land Trust preserve in 2023, someone had mowed a loop around the field for a pleasant ending to my forest stroll.

At about 0.3 miles down the main path, a short loop branches off to the left and traces a section of a stream. The loop at the southern end of the property brings you through woodlands, as the preserve suggests! There were some muddy and wet sections in this section when I walked here.

The total walk is about 1.4 miles. A bench has been set up by the stream on the main path.

Directions: The preserve is off Leavitt Road, just under 0.4 miles from the intersection with Route 150 (Guilford Road), on the right. If you’re coming from the other direction on Leavitt road, it is about 0.5 miles, on the left, from the junction with Andrew Ham Road. The parking area, a short distance beyond the trailhead kiosk in an open grassy, rocky area, is not plowed in the winter.

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