Milliken Mills Trails, Old Orchard Beach


  • Preserve Size: 68 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~2 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: stream, historical sites

The community seems really proud of this trail system — and they should be! It is a good place to walk. The trail are well-marked, and there are surprises along the way, including an old gravesite and pretty spots along the stream. Students have been involved in creating guides to the preserve. There are picnic tables. Thanks to a group of talented fourth graders, you can read more here.

To access the gravesite, walk along the orange-blazed trail. When you see the information panel about the grave, you’ll see a blue-marked trail in front of you. The gravestone is down the hill, slightly to the left. Some of the trails end at a housing development.

On the east side of the trail system (the one that does not have the parking lot), you’ll find the trail to the left of the kiosk if you are facing away from the road.

Directions: The parking lot is at 192 Portland Avenue. There are two parts of the trail system on either side of Portland Avenue.

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