I love walks where you step away from a dingy part of urban living (like a busy road) and into a forest that makes you feel you are very far away. The 20-acre Jagolinzer Preserve is so pretty. Despite the trail only being one mile or so, you can walk to the banks of the Saco River, along a mossy-stoned stream, and to a wall of big boulders that was once a dam. Here at the dam, accessed by a steep little path, is one of the prettiest waterfalls I’ve seen in Maine! It’s multi-tiered, multi-pooled. It’s lovely, and protected by the Francis Small Heritage Trust.

Directions: Turn off Route 25 in Limington onto a little road called Olive’s Way. You’ll see a small sign for the preserve on the left. Google makes it look like the road next to Olive’s Way is actually Olive’s Way, but in real life, you’ll see a street sign on the road where the trail head is.
