Description

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 has designed and constructed in the town of Brooklin.  The 1.5-mile trail was constructed during the summer of 2013 by BHHT trail manager Ken Burgess with the help of the Trust’s volunteer crew and the Brooklin Youth Corps.

The Hundred Acre Wood trailhead is located on High Street, 1/10 mile from the “four corners” intersection with Hales Wood Road, River Road, and Hales Hill Road.  The trail is available to the public because of a generous gift of land by the Stephen Winthrop and M. Jane Williamson family.

Other Information

  • Please stay on marked trails.

  • Dogs must be leashed.
  • Foot traffic only.

Downeast Phenology Trail

While visiting this beautiful trail take part in our scientific research project: Phenology Trackers of Maine (PhToM). Millions of songbirds migrate south every fall along the northeast coastline. To get from here to there they need stopovers to refuel on fruits and insects. This hiking trail is one of those stopover locations.

As the climate changes, temperatures are going up. And as things heat up, fruits ripen and insects emerge earlier and earlier. But, birds are migrating south later and later. Will there be any fruits or insects left for the birds when they fly through our region? You can help us answer this question--check out our project website before you go for your hike.

Schoodic Institute is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to advancing ecosystem science and learning for all ages through a unique partnership with Acadia National Park. Schoodic Institute and Acadia National Park are national leaders in the development of new techniques to involve the public in science, education and conservation.
