Perley Pond-Northwest River Preserve, Sebago

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 149 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~.4 mile one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: upland forest, Perley Pond (off access road)

There isn’t a walking path on this rectangular preserve that includes frontage on the Northwest River and Perley Pond. Instead, you can walk a little ways along a driveway that bisects the preserve. This wheelchair-accessible road cuts through upland forest. I think much of the rest of the land here is wetlands. If you do walk down the driveway, at some point you cross onto private land — it was not clear when — and you’ll see two camps near the river.

Perley Pond can be accessed a little ways up from the start of the driveway. It’s a warm 29-acre pond.

Directions: The preserve is off Folly Road, much of which is dirt, I think. If you’re getting to Folly Road from Peaked Mountain Road, note that this road is not maintained during the winter but is decently passable in the summer.
