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.

Trailhead Information

From Hallowell: take the Outlet Rd to Jamie's Pond Rd, a gravel road forking off to the right, marked by a small street sign. Proceed for 0.5 miles, look for a turn-off down to the pond on your left. There is also parking along Jamie's Pond Rd itself. The Jamie's Pond Road entrance is gated part way down in the wintertime and spring until the road dries out. 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. There is seasonal access to Jamies Pond for hand-carried watercraft at the parking lot on the Pond. The Pond contains trout and bass.

I emailed the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife department today, 9/25/17 and was told that swimming is "perfectly acceptable" at Jamie's Pond.

This is a really great hiking area. They are currently actively logging in area, so some trails are significantly disturbed, The most impacted trails are the branch coming off Meadowhills road to the west of the parking/gate and the north east branch that goes off the property to the powerline/snowmobile trails. The large northern loop is bisected at one point by a logging road but is easily crossed.
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures in Maine!
