Trail Activity
0.6 miles, Round Trip
Dirt/Forest Floor


A one mile trail leads through a delightful woodland and down a steep hill (use caution) to a Kennebec River salt marsh. The trail then hugs the shoreline before heading back up hill to an apple tree, and an earthen dam constructed to create a pond. This ancient farm shows many signs of prior settlement, from stone walls to old road beds, In the spring, naturalized daffodils, myrtle, daylilies and honeysuckle are all signs of human intervention in the landscape.

Trail Tips

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.

Trailhead Information

Take Main Road (Rte. 209) 3.3 miles north of Center Store, or 1.5 miles south of Winnegance, and turn onto Fiddlers Reach Road, proceed 0.3 miles to Atwood Lane, then turn right onto Atwood Ln. When road appears to split, proceed straight (not right) and continue over the hill on Atwood Lane approximately 0.3 miles, at which point you will find the parking area on the left on an old abandoned road. The trailhead is 200 ft further on Atwood Lane on the right, marked by a sign.
