Knight’s Pond is situated less than a mile from both Cumberland and North Yarmouth centers and is suitable for a range of recreational activities, including ice skating, fishing, dog walking, mountain biking, trail running, snowmobiling, hunting, and more. Visitors are permitted to snowshoe and cross-country ski, although the trails are not maintained for these activities specifically. The preserve is made up of a 46-acre pond, a large section of forestland, and a network of trails.
Funding for this $1.13 million conservation acquisition project came from hundreds of local private donors, the property taxpayers of Cumberland and North Yarmouth, the Land for Maine’s Future program, USFWS NAWCA, private foundations, and more.
