Negutaquet Conservation Area, North Berwick


  • Preserve Size: 100 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 2.5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: a small riverside cemetery, beaver habitat, meadows, forest

Trails in blue are on the Negutaquet parcel; trails in red are on the Maple Street parcel.

The 100-acre Negutaquet Conservation Area has about two miles of fields, a trail along a small, sparkling river, long stone walls, and an old family cemetery. A huge double oak tree excites some visitors! The Great Works Regional Land Trust protects this divine spot, which has several ways to explore lovely forests and meadows. Some of the trails, especially around the oval in the middle of the preserve, are particularly wide, level, and easy to walk.

Additionally, this preserve is connected to the 60-acre Maple Street Conservation Area and Town Forest via a sturdy bridge and 0.75-mile trail. (The connecting trail is not open to pets.)

Directions: The preserve is off of Lebanon Road in North Berwick, about a mile from Route 4. The parking lot is quite large.

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