Payeur Preserve, Ogunquit


  • Preserve Size: 35 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1 mile
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: stone walls

This easy one-mile loop is perhaps a good place for dog owners hanging out at the nearby dog park to take their pup when either they or their dog gets tired of playing. The forest is filled with stone walls and vernal pools, and plays an important part in protecting the Ogunquit watershed. Unfortunately, it sounds like there is a shooting range (or at least a diehard gun owner) nearby, and throughout our walk, a gun(s) was being shot off distressingly close. At least the lot is plowed in the winter, though!

Directions: The trailhead is accessed from the Ogunquit Dog Park, next to the Transfer Station off Berwick Road. 


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