Stephenson Preserve, Belfast


  • Preserve Size: 8 acres

This is a wee wooded preserve, with a fairly steep and short uphill that offers a few views through trees of the river. The loop is just about half a mile or so. The land is protected by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust. (Note, this preserve used to be called the Knowlton-Swanson-Stephenson Preserve.)

Directions: You have to park at the rail trail lot and walk a brief ways along City Point Road to get to the trailhead on the left.

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