Mill Brook Preserve, Westbrook

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • 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.
