Named after the famed woods that are home to A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh characters, the Hundred Acre Wood is the first hiking trail that Blue Hill Heritage Trust designed and constructed in the town of Brooklin. The 1.7-mile outer loop takes visitors along a wooded path. A 0.5-mile inner accessible loop has a surface of crushed gravel and is suitable for strollers or those with limited mobility. The trails travel across some very distinctive terrain, from rocky outcrops, to marsh, to woods.

The trail is available to the public because of a generous gift of land by the Stephen Winthrop and M. Jane Williamson family.
