Hike through a 24-acre coastal salt marsh home to much wildlife. 

After crossing the Mousam River on Western Ave, see signs and gravel pull-off areas for parking at the Bridle Path trailhead. The Madelyn Marx Preserve is a greater part of the Kennebunk Land Trust home to many preserves in the area (So look for Kennebunk Land Trust signs as well).

Hike through open spaces, over the unique coastal marsh habitat and through dense forests where wildlife pops up around every corner.
