Sousa Family Preserve, Alfred


  • Preserve Size: 213 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 2-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Sights: forest, wetlands, ancient Black Gum tree

The roughly 2-mile trail at this 213-acre Three Rivers Land Trust preserve begins rather steeply, taking you up through a forest. In about 1-mile, the well-marked path intersects with an old woods road. If you turn right and walk 0.2 miles or so, you’ll reach a wetland area. To return to the parking area, take a left at the intersection and continue down the path toward Gebung Road.

Directions: The trailhead and small parking area is off Wilderness Acres Drive, which is off Gebung Road. Parking is on the left at the start of a small gravel road blocked with boulders.
