Encompassing two miles of 25-Mile Stream shoreline, the 700-acre Moulton's Mill Preserve offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Central Maine woods! Enjoy hunting, fishing, berry picking, paddling, birding or snowshoeing. A hand-carry boat launch is located at the eastern most preserve parking area on Route 139, as is a short-trail to the old mill site. The parcel on the eastern shore is best accessed by water. The western parcel is accessible from Route 139 along an old woods road that starts at the information kiosk visible from the road just after 25 Mile Stream. This trail provides a nice walk along the stream.
In 2021 a trail extension from the Rine Preserve was added to connect to a new trail which travels north along another old woods road which starts at the back end of the hayfield. This trail loops and then meets the woods road mentioned above at the informational kiosk. Be aware that there are extremely wet areas during wet seasons, so rubber boots or waterproof footwear are recommended. The new trail additions remain in a primitive state with improvements slated for summer of 2022.
The two properties that comprise the Moulton's Mill Preserve were acquired with support from the Maine Natural Resource Conservation Program.
