Hackett Land Preserve and Minot Easement, Harpswell


  • Preserve Size: 39 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: forest

This trail offers nothing but woods, which is actually somewhat of a relief after all the majestic vistas of many of the other preserves on this site! The trail departs from the Harpswell Historical Society, where you can park. To start, you must walk along snowmobile tracks for a bit. These seem to go off forever into the distance in either direction, so if you’re aiming for a long walk or ski, these might interest you. Harpswell Heritage Land Trust protects this preserve.  

Directions: From the intersection of Harpswell Neck Road (Route 123) and Mountain Road, follow Harpswell Neck Road south 2 miles. Park at the Harpswell Historical Society building on the left. Cross the road and walk down the private Littlefield Road until you see signs for the trail.
