Description

The Jamies Pond Wildlife Management Area is 840 acres in size and lies in three communities: Manchester, Hallowell, and Farmingdale. The trails are well-marked. Connecting loops form a network that allows hikers to choose shorter or longer walks, all in the easy to moderate difficulty range. The 107-acre pond is known both as Jamies Pond and Jimmies Pond. The pond was formerly the water supply for Hallowell and, as a result, most of its shoreline is undeveloped. The property is managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife.

Other Information

The pond supports a healthy population of gamefish and other species, making it a popular destination for fishers. No swimming, overnight camping, or fires allowed.

Trail Tips

Respect Wildlife
Keep wildlife wild: do not feed, follow, approach, or otherwise harass wild animals. Doing so may alter their natural behaviors.

Trailhead Information

There is a winter parking area on the left near the gate.

From Manchester: there is access from both the Collins Rd and Meadow Hill Rd. The trailhead off the Collins Road is at a parking lot on the North side of the Collins Road in Manchester. The trailhead off the Meadow Hill Road in Manchester is off a parking lot on the south side of the Meadow Hill Road In Manchester.
