Sewell Woods, Scarborough


  • Preserve Size: 35 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.1 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, Stuart Brook

This is a 35-acre wooded preserve with 1.1 miles of wide trails on one side (the southern side). Across the street, the .3-mile, there-and-back trail is narrower and doesn’t seem like it sees many feet. The land is protected by the Scarborough Land Trust.

Directions: From Route 1, take Broadturn Road for 1 mile. Turn left onto Ash Swamp Road. Continue straight through the intersection at Hearn Road. Look for the Sewell Woods sign and gravel parking lot on the left.


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