Description

Cumberland and North Yarmouth's Knight's Pond Preserve's 300 acres host a variety of marked trails ranging from easy to hard. In the winter you'll be sharing the trails with x-country skiers, snowshoers and snowmobiles. In warmer weather the trail abound with hikers, trail runners and dog walkers.

What bring's everyone to Knight's Pond? It's the trails. They're fun. Local riding groups regularly frequent these trails and located as they are a little over 1/2 mile from the center of two towns, they're easy to get to.

There are about 6 miles of trails at Knight's Pond, all of which are enjoiyable in both directions and more may be developed in the future. Read more about Knight's Pond Preserve
