Riverbrook Preserve, Waldoboro


  • Preserve Size: 371 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~3.15 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: farm fields, Medomak River, Meadow Brook

Much of this preserve is so beautiful. The trail starts out at the edge of fields, with the river — wide and slow — to your left. Then you enter the woods to start the River Loop. If you go left, you follow a path along the river to a spot where it widens into a broad curve. You can do a .3-mile “Island loop” here for more river views. When you return to the River Loop and continue walking clockwise, you come out on some more meadows. At this point, you can choose to return to the trailhead, or start another larger loop, the Brook Loop. While this loop includes some pretty looks at the brook, it crosses a lot of land that is recovering from logging, and the paths follow old woods roads. 

Directions: The preserve is on your left if you are heading north on Route 220. Once you pass the Medomak River, look for the preserve kiosk and parking area. If you’ve reached Morse’s Sauerkraut, you have gone too far.


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