Sweetsir Farm Preserve, Yarmouth


  • Preserve Size: 30 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .5 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Royal River, woods, wetlands

This walk is not well-marked. There is a mostly obvious footpath that runs from the parking lot to the river. Avoid the trails that branch off to the left; they lead onto private property. Here’s a bit more info.

Directions: From the intersection of North Road and Ledge Road go north a tenth of a mile to Concord Circle and turn left; go through the subdivision half way around the circle to Old Field Road. Cross the railroad tracks and proceed to a small parking area at the end of the road. The trail extends straight into the woods, approximately 0.3 mile to the river.

  1. The trail as mapped above does go onto private lands. The author’s inset map copied from our Open Space Guide (available online) shows the property boundaries which don’t extend on that point (goose neck) extending into the river. Encouraging trespass by showing data like this on line can be upsetting to the landowner and could jeopardize future trail use. The river corridor in Yarmouth is remarkably undeveloped and a gem. Thanks for responsibly encouraging people to explore some of these wonderful places, and please check the town’s open space guide for the real map of trails

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