Riverside Fields Preserve, Dennysville


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: ~0.5-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Hardscrabble River, wild meadow

The small preserve is made up of a wild meadow reaching down to Hardscrabble River. From May to October, Cobscook Shores mows wide paths through the meadow grasses, but watch your step, the ground can be uneven in places.

In the winter, the trails are groomed for skiing, both for school programs and the public.

Directions: From Route 1, turn onto Shipyard Road. If you’re coming from the north, the preserve entrance will be on your left in roughly 650 feet. The drive is marked with a blue Cobscook Shores sign.

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