Trail Activity
0.5 miles, Round Trip
New Gloucester
Dirt/Forest Floor, Rock/Ledge


This short trail is primarily designed to get off-trail enthusiasts including hunters and foragers across the powerline and onto the large undeveloped parcel; it is also a quiet trail for a short on-trail hike, or for convenient access to a mossy picnic ledge, beaver pond, and vernal pools. The new trail follows a private residential driveway for 50 feet before turning right onto RRCT’s trail corridor. The primitive narrow trail includes ledges, roots, and rocks.  CMP construction on the powerline is planned for 2019.

Other Information

Dogs and safe hunting are allowed on the Preserve. Hikers should always wear blaze orange in season. Dogs should stay on trail by voice control or leash to protect deer populations especially during the winter.
