This walk have is 4 miles of mild up's and downs. This was exactly what we were looking for. There were some interesting sights; a lake and a balancing rock, and lots of ferns on a nice, well-marked path.

What a wonderful preservation effort. This moderate 1to 1 1/2 hour hike thru pine forest, around ledges, boulders on well worn trails gives beautiful vistas of Lake Megunticook. The road to the parking area wends its way thru fields and back yards as well as...More

Hikes/walks are well laid out, well marked and offer stunning scenery in a wide variety of forest, meadow and lakeside settings. Nothing difficult here. CMLT, who manages this facility, always does an outstanding job at all their preserves.

Fernald's Neck Preserve is not well known and that is what makes it wonderful. It is a quiet, peaceful, pretty place to visit without any crowds. There are clearly marked trails and the walking isn't too difficult. We walked the blue trail, were impressed by...More

Well marked, relatively easy walk with access to Megunticook Lake. The balance rock is fun and there are a few lookouts where you could swim or fish. There are several different trails and could combine them to make a longer walk. No special hiking gear...More

This is not to be missed. Walk the Blue Loop and take in the views of Lake Megunticock. Detour to the Balance Rock and swim off the rock beach if you'd like. I will note that our Fitbit said the Loop and Rock detour took...More

If you are looking for a quiet walk through the woods along a lake the Fernald's Neck Preserve is a good choice. It's about five miles from downtown Camden. Bring a swimsuit the water is lovely. It can be a bit buggy in June.
