From ME Route 9, take Winn Road 2.9 miles and turn left into the Community Park recreational fields. From the Falmouth Road take Winn Road 0.1 miles north and turn right into Community Park.

Field Road Trailhead: From the intersection of Field and Winn Roads, go south 0.7 miles on Field Road and park on the side of the road before the railroad tracks. The trail leaves from the west (right) side of the road. the intersection of Woodville and Field Roads, take Field Road north 0.8 miles and park on the side of the road (about 200 yards north of the railroad tracks). The trail will be on the left (west) side of the road.
The Community Park trails are a mix of wide field trails used for nordic skiing and cross-country running, narrower woodland trails built for cross-country running, and narrow, singletrack trails built for mountain biking and trail running. Several of the trails follow along a creek with beautiful waterfalls in high water. The network includes the segment of the Cross-Falmouth Trail from the East Branch Trail to Hadlock Forest Trail. The trail segment on the non-park side of the railroad tracks is closed because of the removal of the bridge across the East Branch of the Piscataqua River.
This trail passes through a property that was acquired in part with funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program. For more information about the LMF program and the places it has helped to protect, please visit the LMF webpage.
