Hope Woods



This property is 72 acres of forest and field located just off Rt. 1/Main Street in Kennebunk, behind Hope Cemetery. Hope Woods represents pristine open space just steps away from the village center! It's a perfect spot to explore in all seasons--winter, spring, summer, and fall! It's accessible for hikers with limited mobility to Hope Woods.  The property contains about 2 miles of well-marked trails. Hope Woods was protected in 2017 through a conservation easement held by Kennebunk Land Trust.
