About the Kennebago Wildlands
This tract was the first tract in a multi-step acquisition within the Kennebago River watershed. This area, known as the Logans, includes riparian habitat and forestland that connects to adjacent conserved lands.
The Wildlands features 1,731 acres of forest, shorefront, and wetlands, including over two miles of undeveloped shorefront and uplands surrounding 190-acre Little Kennebago Lake and nine miles of frontage on the upper Kennebago River from Crowley Brook to Little Kennebago Lake.
This tract includes the storied inlet of Little Kennebago Lake that noted angling writer Ray Bergman featured in his 1938 classic Trout.
THE SEVEN LEAVE NO TRACE PRINCIPLES
FOR OUR CONSERVATION AREAS
Being prepared means knowing where you are going before getting there. Pack a map, talk with hikers and look at trail apps. Choose equipment for comfort, weather, and safety. Plan the trip to match your time, skills, and abilities.
We strive for one well-designed trail rather than many poorly chosen routes. Stay within the width of the trail and hike single file on durable surfaces, like rock and sand. They can withstand repeated use. Durable surfaces are less likely to erode. Vegetation, including the lichen that grows on rocks, is fragile and easily damaged by treads.
Carry in, carry out. Please remove your pet’s waste.
Allow those who come after you the same sense of wonder by leaving flowers, rocks, plants, archaeological artifacts, and other objects of interest where they are.
Permitted campfires are allowed in the established fire ring. State of Maine laws must be followed.
When wildlife watching, we recommend using the Rule of Thumb. Don’t touch, get near, feed, or pick up wild animals. Doing so causes them stress, and they may have a harmful disease to humans.
Always be courteous to other visitors. Everyone deserves to enjoy a positive outdoor experience. Be mindful of your noise level, be a responsible pet owner, and enjoy the natural world.
