There are many trail combinations in the Preserve! We chose the longest....about 1.3 miles. Although there are hundred of roots which made it very important to watch your footing it was overall a great experience on a beautiful day! There was very little change in elevation on much of this beautiful wooded trail and for more than one half you... More

This preserve is absolutely charming. The trails follow the rugged shore and go through the spruce forest as well. It is our first choice. Also it is dog freindly

We walked this slow paced trail to Barred Island and then around the loop back to the parking lot. There were a LOT of roots on this trail. The trail itself was very easy, no steep climbs, soft ground, pretty level. There where, however, a ton of roots. If you're sure footed, then this is an easy walk. If your... More

I have been hiking the tennis preserve trail for over 20 years. My family always does this hike each summer.

Beautiful hike on mostly shaded trails. Views of the water are stunning . We got bitten up by bugs so recommend bug spray. Took us 1.5 hours for the loop to the water and back. Few hills. But slow going due to tree roots. Recommend highly.

Nice easy to moderate hike with lots of woods and ocean views. Love the coves around every corner in this part of Maine.

One of the best walks we did. Beautiful changing sceneries of water views and moss covered woods. The Maine heritage trust did a great job in marking the trails. We saw a seal and enjoyed fantastic views. Limited parking, come early!

Our family (ages 9 to 62) enjoyed the east loop of this hike. It is easy enough for all ages and there were so many great views at every turn! Beautiful shoreline views, foliage, and some great history toward the end of the loop with the cemetary. We saw a bald eagle! Definitely make time for this hike! Just as... More

I enjoyed my visit to the Edgar M. Tennis Preserve. It is an easy, relaxing place to walk with some very nice forested path that also has lovely waterfront views. Unfortunately it is not well-marked. Make sure you follow Sunshine Road and it is very easy to miss Tennis Road. Keep your eyes open for Tennis Road about 2.5 miles... More

Beautiful views . At the end is an old cemetery , very interesting . It is on private property so... More
