Located in the center of Kennebunk, the 38-acre preserve has over 2,400 feet of frontage along the Mousam River and is convenient to the downtown area. Following a relatively steep initial ascent, the trail levels and winds through mixed forest on a trail blazed in red. Approximately .75 of a mile into the preserve there is a blue blazed scenic vista that overlooks a broad estuary where the Mousam River becomes tidal; there is another overlook at the end of the trail.
Along with being an iconic Lighthouse of the Maine Southern Coast Nubble Light is a great location for scuba diving, fishing or just bring a picnic lunch. Sit back and try to spot the great black backed gulls, sun fish and harbor seals.
