Description

CSF North trails are mostly in the woods and feel relatively remote despite the proximity to downtown Brunswick. A few access trails follow the edge of active agricultural fields which are leased. Please stay on trails when adjacent to agricultural areas.

On the south side of Pleasant Hill Road, 2.5 of miles of hiking and cross-country ski trails circle around active agricultural areas, meander through woods, and cross a large blueberry barren.  Since pasture and agricultural fields are leased, trail users should stay on marked trails in these areas.

Other Information

Hunting is allowed by permission only. Hikers should be aware that hunters may be present during hunting season and take appropriate precautions, such as wearing blaze orange. The farmhouse and farm buildings adjacent to the parking area are leased privately and are not part of the trail system. Please respect the privacy of their inhabitants. Bikes are also not allowed on the trails.

Dogs are allowed on the trails but are required to be leashed (6ft or less) to prevent impacts on livestock and conflicts with farm animals. Please respect these rules to ensure the continued safety of people and animals, and to protect the conservation values of this property. Thank you for your cooperation!

Trailhead Information

Crystal Spring Farm (CSF) is located on Pleasant Hill Road in Brunswick between Maine Street and Church Road. From downtown Brunswick, travel south on Maine Street and turn right on Pleasant Hill Road. Follow Pleasant Hill Road about 1 mile further and look for CSF on the right. 

North trails can be accessed from a parking area at the end of Maurice Drive. To reach Maurice Drive parking, take Main Street south from downtown Brunswick, then turn right on Pleasant Hill Road. Proceed for 0.3 miles, then turn right onto Baribeau Drive. In 0.2 miles, turn left onto Maurice Drive. At the end of Maurice Drive, turn left into Horizons, then immediately right into the small lot marked with a BTLT sign. The trail enters the woods north of the Community Garden.

South trails can be accessed by turning left past the Crystal Spring Farm sign at the top of the hill and parking to the left of the tree-lined driveway. Trail leaves from the southwest corner of the parking lot where the shed is located.

Park only in designated areas to avoid blocking access for farm vehicles.
