Mousam River Wildlife Sanctuary

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. The sanctuary is an ideal location to observe waterfowl on the river; warblers abundant during migration. Preserve is located at the end of Water Street just before the treatment plant; parking is available 50 yards before the trailhead, information kiosk on site.
