About the Cummings Preserve Trails

Parking for the trail is at the Dundee Dam, and the trail begins with Sappi’s canoe portage trail a short ways back up the road from the parking (look for the brown and white hiker sign). The trail is a lollipop loop with one section on the remains of the historic Oxford-Cumberland Towpath and the other along the Presumpscot River.

Cummings Preserve is a public access conservation easement of the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust.
