Public – Limited Access

Cook Preserve

Five acres of wetland habitat and a mature beech stand are protected next to the busy Route 1 corridor. There are no trails or parking. Access is across private property.






22 acres donated to KLT by former Board Member Bill Cutts. This property  lies within the Brave Boat Harbor watershed and features an upland forest, wetlands, and part of an old mill pond. The property currently has no trails. There is limited on-street parking and access from Foyes Lane.





This 30 acre preserve in the heart of the Brave Boat Harbor watershed conserves oak and hemlock forests and portions of a large wetland on either side of the old York Harbor & Beach Railroad alignment. The old railroad is the primary walking path on this property and access is across private property.




Measuring 200 feet to a side, this pocket greenspace in the Bowen Road neighborhood is surrounded by an old stonewall and protected as a beautiful open space.



HubbardSlightly under an acre of shorefront oak-beech forest is conserved on Cutts Island adjacent to Brave Boat Harbor. This property has limited pedestrian access via a private road.





Rustlewood Farm

hayride1300  acres of farmland — fields, forest and wetlands– stretching from Kittery to Eliot. KLT purchased two conservation easements on the farm in 2014, which have eliminated the possibility of future residential development. The land protects nearly a mile of Spruce Creek and maintains the open vistas along Wilson Road (Rte 101).The Johnson family continues to own and farm the land, the last dairy farm in Kittery. Year round, public access is limited to a short trail (which KLT volunteers will build alongside Wilson Road in Eliot), leading to a view of Mt. Agamenticus. The trail head includes a small parking area. Passive winter recreation (skiing, snowshoeing) is allowed. Hunting is only by permission from the Johnson family.


Lynch South
