Dirt/Forest Floor, Snow - Groomed


The Donnabeth Lippman Park offers easy walking on packed earth through wooded areas and around the edge of Chaffin Pond. The park's main trail loops around Chaffin Pond, but there are also trails on the east side of the pond that leave and connect back to the main loop. A trail extension on the north side of Chaffin Pond leads to Mud Ponds. These trails on the back side of the pond can be very wet during the spring season; however, these trails are an easy family hike that is in a great natural setting. Picnic tables and benches near the trailhead make this a great place for a picnic.

Trail Tips

Dispose of Waste Properly
Dispose of solid human waste in a cathole 6-8 inches deep and at least 200 feet from water, camp, or trails. Don't forget to cover it up when you're done!

Trailhead Information

Heading North on US Route 302 in Windham, travel 0.6 miles from the intersection of US Route 302 and ME Route 35. Look for a dirt road on the right just before the Sherwin Williams paint store. There is a  small white and green road sign that says Chaffin Pond Preserve Road. Parking is available off road within view of US Route 302.
