Trailhead

The trailheads are accessed from Rocklin Road, off of River Road in Windham.

From the intersection of US 302 and ME 117 in North Windham, go 0.5 mile south on US 302 to River Road on the the right. Following River Road just over a mile from US 302 will bring to you to Otter Drive on the right providing access to the northern end of Rocklin Road or the southern end of Rocklin Road can be accessed by continuing another half mile. Paved pullouts indicate parking and mark the trailheads.

Description

The trailheads are not marked but leave directly from the pullouts and are easy to find. Once on the trail, blue laminated signs mark the trail as it follows Otter Brook. On the northern end, the trail follows snowmobile trails briefly so users should pay attention to signs to be sure to stay on the correct trail.

This trail, especially the southern end, can be very wet in the spring and generally follows the uneven forest floor. Make sure to be prepared for these conditions.

These trails are not maintained very well. This is more of an outdoor survival training kind of trail, rather than a fun recreational trail. There are many dangerous looking widow makers, and the foot bridges have rotting timbers and exposed nails. Going in through the southern trail head took us through a prickly raspberry patch. The northern trail head was better maintained for snowmobiles. Once off the snowmobile track the path was difficult to follow. Did I mention all the poison ivy?
