QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 308 acres
  • Trail Mileage: Perimeter loop is roughly 3 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods

Trails in blue are Lowell Preserve. Purple are North Falmouth Community Forest. The trails in Cumberland, Falmouth, and Windham are very well connected, either by footpath or snowmobile trail. Not shown on this Google map is how this trails connects to a larger trail system.

Here is my attempt at a map that roughly shows the multi-town interconnected trail system.

This is a popular place for fat-tire and mountain bikers, and it connects to the many miles of trails in Falmouth and Cumberland, as well as to miles of snowmobile trails. But if you are not familiar with the preserve, it is easy to get a little bit turned around in here and even lost. The trails are not as well marked as the neighboring Falmouth system (or they weren’t when I visited in the winter of 2017).

I found the trails in the southern portion more clearly marked than the northern part. Be careful to not wander off the preserve onto the snowmobile trails to the north (north of the Falmouth Community Forest connector). Also, it is easy to miss the yellow-blazed trail on the eastern part of the preserve, and too easy to wander off the preserve onto Libby Hill Road.

The trail system connects to North Falmouth Community Forest and to the Cross-Town trail. Also, there are lots of snowmobile trails that link to the preserve.

Directions: The parking lot is at the East Windham Fire Station, 45 Falmouth Road, across from Beach Road and about 1,100 feet from Little Duck Road.
