Many of Kennebunk Land Trust properties are experiencing downed trees and icy walking conditions. We are working to ensure all of our properties reman safe for visitors!

Our volunteers are working hard to clear the trails and remove debris. Theses storms were quite a doozy! If you do decide to visit, please prepare with shoe spikes, warm clothes, and a willingness to turn around if it gets too unsafe.

Stay with us as we work to provide open and accessible spaces in every season!


There is a significantly large tree perched at a dangerous angle, other fallen trees along the trails, and icy conditions. 

Use the trails at your own risk. 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Join us for a nature walk!

This storm has done a real number on our trails! After a lot of trail monitoring, one especially big blow down at the Wonderbrook trailhead, and double-digit negative degrees, we are POSTPONING this Saturday’s (2/4) Nature Walk until Saturday February 11. Same time same place until further notice!

Thank you to our incredible trail crews and stewardship committee monitors for assessing, reporting, and chainsaw-ing their way into safe and accessible trails for all. We have more to do and will keep working away!

The First Saturday Walk Series with Linda Littlefield Grenfell will continue into 2023! Join in and share her naturalist view of the area's woods and waters.
