Alewive Woods Preserve in Kennebunk, Maine is a great place for dog friendly hiking with a refreshing pond at its heart. Owned by the Kennebunk Land Trust, Alewive Woods Preserve consists of over 625 acres of land and a 45-acre pond. The 2.5 mile trail is well marked and winds its way through reforested red pines, wild blueberry bushes and wild flowers to Alewife Pond. Alewife Pond offers scenic views, while your dog enjoys swimming. It is also a popular pond for fishing.
Dogs are allowed off leash, under voice control. But owners are reminded that dogs must be respectful of the wildlife that call these woods home. Located on Cole Road just minutes from Interstate 95, parking is available at the Trailhead.
