Sewell Woods

Covering 35 acres of woodlands, Sewell Woods offers a magnificent landscape bursting with wildlife. Stuart Brook runs between the tall branches of Sewell Woods before meeting Cascade Brook leading to Dunstan River.

Sewell Woods are very well-kept woodlands in Scarborough Maine, this park presents the perfect environment for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing as well as wildlife watching while at one with nature.

Taking a look at the park’s map, visitors can note multiple trails, most of which move along Stuart Brook and are relatively easy with limited elevation. A 1.1-mile trail moves from Frith Farm, raising and growing organic products to Ash Swamp Road. Close to the farm visitors can take a short rest and a quick photo on the popular wooden bench, which has also earned its place on the woods map. The Sewell Woods Loop trail, is another relatively easy trail, with a 5m elevation gain, passing by a gorgeous waterfall along the way. Visitors can also follow a shorter trail dedicated to Bruce Lincoln, a biologist who assisted in the conservation of Scarborough, the trail also moves along Stuart Brook, crossing it along the way through a number of bridges.

Ever since 1996, the woods have been owned by Scarborough Land Trust (SLT), after being donated to them by Albert Sewell, who bought the land in 1935. Sewell who owned a sawmill, was also the owner of Sewell Wood Products, manufacturing wooden products. With Scarborough growing at a rapid rate, the SLT was set up in 1977 to ensure the protection of the area, especially given the increase in inhabitants. Even now their aim is still to conserve and maintain the natural habitat of Scarborough, as well as connecting people to nature and the land.

Sewell Woods is open to visitors and are equally remarkable all year round. In summer visitors can still enjoy walks with trees providing ample shade from the scorching sun. While in fall the park is the most beautiful taking on the brightest colors, it truly is magical in winter as snow clings to treetops. In winter the woods are ideal for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. 

While Sewell Woods is not the largest of parks, this well-maintained woodland still offers numerous well-delineated trails, an outstanding environment for wildlife watching, and winter sports opportunities. This park makes an excellent peaceful retreat in Scarborough, just 7 miles away from Portland Maine.
