Cummings Preserve, Gorham


  • Preserve Size: 5 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Dundee Dam, Presumpscot River

This one-mile trail follows the old Oxford-Cumberland canal towpath, and for much of the way, you are walking along an embankment. The river is slow and pretty here, below the big Dundee Dam. At the start of the trail you can cross a pedestrian bridge to a small island, and check out the frothy river waters below the dam.

Directions: The trailhead starts at Dundee Dam, at the end of Dundee Road. Turn onto Covered Bridge Road (there is actually a narrow covered bridge!) from River Road. Dundee Road is on the right, .7 miles from the bridge.


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