Davis Stream Preserve, Jefferson


  • Preserve Size: 9 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~.7-mile walk
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Davis Stream

This is a sweet, short walk (about ).7 miles) along part of the quiet and remote Davis Stream, still and brown. It looks like a glorious place to canoe.

The Midcoast Conservancy’s preserve is nine acres. Walkers can park at the Willow Grange and access the trail from the road bordering the left side of the cemetery. Walk to the far end of the cemetery and follow a mossy old road down a small ravine to the kiosk on the right. The blazed trail heads off right into the woods. Note that the marked trail wraps around the cemetery backlot, keeping to the woods throughout the walk.

Directions: From US Route 1 in Nobleboro, take East Pond Road for 6.9 Miles to ME Route 32. Turn left and follow ME Route 32 for 0.7 Miles. Turn right onto ME Route 126 (Washington Road), and follow it for 0.3 miles. Parking is at the Willow Grange on the right. Walk north along the road past the cemetery. The trailhead is located just past the cemetery on the right. Please do not walk through the cemetery.
