Ezra Smith Wildlife Conservation Area, Mount Vernon


  • Preserve Size: 125 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .6 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, wetlands

Currently there is a short trail system tucked under Route 41 on the rather steep hillside of this 125-acre preserve. Kennebec Land Trust has proposed a future trail that would skirt the 50-acre wetlands.

Directions: A small sign for the Ezra Smith Conservation Area is on the east side of Route 41 in Mount Vernon, just a short ways past the Butler Cemetery. The property is about half a mile south of Blake Hill Road. Vehicles travel fast on Route 41, so take care.
