The Chandler Brook Preserve includes remnants of an old farm, including two large hay fields and a hemlock forest. Visitors will find well-worn, natural paths in the forest and along the brook. These trails connect to the mowed paths around the perimeter of the fields. (Some of the lowland trails can be wet in sections after heavy rains and in the spring.) All trails are easily accessed from the parking area. This preserve provides excellent bird-watching opportunities. 

Other Information

Please remember to clean up after your animals (dogs and horses) while visiting the preserve.

Hunting is allowed in the Chandler Brook Preserve.

Trail Tips

Dispose of Waste Properly
Keep Maine green and clean! Pick up trash, even if it's not yours. Leave soon-to-be trash like excess packaging, stickers, and twist ties at home.
Hide All

Trailhead Information

Please park in the small gravel parking area just north of the railroad bridge on North Road in North Yarmouth (roughly a mile north of Dunn's Corner and the intersection with Memorial Highway/ME-9). Walk along the right-of-way to the property's entrance at the gated railroad crossing. Please do not cross onto the neighbor's property to the left as you walk toward the tracks.

Beautiful walks through varied habitat. Don't miss the trails at the far end of the fields that go along Chandler Brook. Great birding, too.
