About the St. Pierre Preserve 

The parking area for the preserve is off of  Route 237 just north of where it crosses the Little River. The remains of the Cumberland-Oxford Canal aqueduct, which allowed boats to cross over the Little River are nearby. This is a popular spot for fishermen. You can also put your canoe or kayak in here and travel by boat down the Little River to the Presumpscot River.

St. Pierre Preserve is owned in fee by the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust.
