Erickson Fields, Rockport


  • Preserve Size: 93 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.6 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: field and forest

This former farm and current preserve has a wide, easy trail that I think could be wheelchair accessible. It makes a 1.4-mile loop by some fields and through the woods. It’s protected by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Directions: Erickson Fields Preserve is located at 124 West St. in Rockport. From the south, take Route 1 north until it intersects with Route 90 outside of Warren, and turn left on Route 90. Follow Route 90 nearly to its end, about 10.5 miles (and about 2.5 miles past the stoplight and intersection with Route 17). Erickson Fields Preserve is on your right across from Cross Street.


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