Preserve Is Partially Open – Please read on for details

Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust (BTLT), Cathance River Education Alliance (CREA), and the Preserve landowner, Seacoast Management, are pleased to announce the partial re-opening of Cathance River Nature Preserve following its earlier closure due to COVID19.

Trails are accessible from the Ecology Center parking lot. The Cathance River and Highland Trails are open as far south as the Rapids Trail. The Beaver and Barnes Leap Trails are also open. Click here for a printable map showing open trails. 

Hiker Parking is closed. Please do not use closed trails, unfinished re-routes, or closed parking areas. New bridges and trail re-routes are in the works, at which time all Preserve trails will open for use. The delay is due to the lack of availability of trail building contractors.

It is essential that Preserve visitors park only in the designated parking area – the Ecology Center parking lot. Most of the streets in Highland Green are not public ways and street parking is not allowed. In the designated parking area, please park efficiently, nose in, to maximize parking space. If parking lots are full, return another day. Check BTLT’s website to find many other wonderful local hikes.

We look forward to seeing you on the trails!
