Margaret C. Manter granted this conservation easement of 8.4 acres to the Orono Land Trust in 2006, and a public trail easement through the Manter Conservation Easement (also known as Manter Wood) forms a loop. There is a possible connection to the town-owned McPhetres Forest, via a short segment through private property.

Manter Wood includes hardwood, mixed wood, and softwood forest stands, with a diverse mix of species, including scattered white oak saplings. The Manter Pine, an impressive feature of the property, measures over 16 feet circumference and is the largest tree in Veazie.

There is no spot to park nearby. Must park either at Veqzie Congregational church lot or at Veazie Tradewinds and walk to the trailhead via Main St. the walk from the car to the trailhead in either direction is longer than the trail itself.
