Mill Brook Preserve, Westbrook


  • Preserve Size: 130 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 5 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: Mill Brook, woods

This trail has been growing and growing, and now includes five delightful miles along the Mill Brook — a mostly wide, shallow, and rock strewn little river. From the trailhead off Methodist Road, if you’re willing to scramble down a steep bank, you will find a few flat rocks and deeper pools. There are four trailheads with parking.

The riverside path does go up and down a bit, and there are a few scrambles up steep sections. This land is protected by the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust.

Directions: Parking for the preserve is on Methodist Road, across from 802 Methodist Rd. You walk down a bank along a mowed snowmobile trail. Follow this until you see a trail sign. You can also park on the side of Willow Lane, crossing Route 302. Or you can start your walk from Perry Court road.


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