River Point Conservation Area, Falmouth


  • Preserve Size: 41 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~2 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: two small ponds, Presumpscot River, east and west branches of the Piscataqua River

This is a pretty 1-mile looped walk on a 41-acre preserve that takes you to the shores of three rivers. The Falmouth Land Trust has put up signs explaining the history of this spot. Once a Native American campsite, it became a farm, and then, seemingly, almost a shopping mall! (It abuts a shopping center.) The fields are now growing in. You can hike from here to the McCrann Preserve for a longer trek.

Directions: Park at the Hannafords at the Falmouth Crossing Shopping Center on Routes 26/100, just opposite Maine Turnpike/I-95 Exit 53. If you face Hannaford’s, you’ll see a wooden overpass that takes you to the kiosk and trailhead.
