Updated 6/4/2021

LELT trails and preserves have seen a large influx of visitors ove the past year. If you are able to, please consider a donation to support the upkeep of the special places & trails we all love.

We ask all trail users & preserve visitors to adhere to the following guidelines when visiting LELT preserves and trails during the pandemic:

  • Do not use the trails if you have symptoms or have been exposed to a known or suspected case of COVID-19.
  • If the parking lot is full, please do not park on the road. Have a plan B and C. Consider waiting or seeking another place to be outdoors. Visit Maine Trail Finder or click here for a full list of LELT preserves open to you.
  • Be prepared. Always have adequate water, snacks, layers, and a first aid kit.
  • Leave No Trace. Carry in, carry out. There is no trash service at any LELT preserves.
