About This Event

The East Windham Conservation Area, owned by the town of Windham, with a conservation easement held by Presumpscot Regional Land Trust, was conserved in September 2023.

The Conservation Area is 700 acres of land, which is roughly the size of Bradbury Mountain State Park. This area is now part of a 2,000-acre conservation corridor – larger than any state park in Southern Maine. This project is the largest wildlife habitat, clean water, and recreational trail corridor in Greater Portland and provides a 30-mile trail network connecting Windham’s Lowell Preserve, and Falmouth’s North Falmouth Community Forest and Blackstrap Hill Preserve. 

The event will begin at the new East Windham Conservation Area parking area. The grand opening event will include a three-mile hilly trail hike to a scenic overlook with views of the White Mountains and additional view points of Little Duck Pond. There will be three guided trip options: hiking, trail running, and mountain biking (dependent upon trail conditions).

There will be a phase-two opening in 2025, including additional trails, and a 1-mile accessible trail. A phase-three opening to include an observation tower is planned for a future year. 

This event is free, but space is limited and registration is required.

*All mountain bikers are expected to bring their own equipment. The inclement weather date is Sunday, May 5, at 10AM. 

This event is co-hosted by the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust, the Town of Windham, the Greater Portland New England Biking Association, and Runaways Run Club
