Edwin L. Smith Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"Combine five trails for a pleasant loop hike through one of the largest blocks of undeveloped forestland on the southern Maine coast. The 1,400-acre Edwin L. Smith Preserve in the northeast corner of Kennebunkport comprises a sizeable chunk of one of the largest remaining blocks of undeveloped land along the Maine coast between Kittery and Brunswick.

Owned and managed by the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust, the Smith property is home to five hiking trails offering 12 miles of woods walking through a wildlife-rich landscape of granite ridges, oak and pine forests, and pocket vernal pools. Blanding’s and wood turtles, foxes, owls, red-shouldered hawks, minks, bobcats, fishers, deer, coyotes, and black bears make their home here."
