The small and large loop trails at Runaround Pond Recreation Area allow exploration of the shoreline of the pond and the shoreline of Chandler Brook. The trails pass near historic cellar holes, the retaining walls of the old mill, the historic granite dam, and quarries. The larger loop is 0.6 miles in length.
Paddling Runaround Pond: Runaround Pond is always an exceptional paddling experience. Paddlers may begin and end at the Runaround Pond Recreation Area's hand-carry boat launch. Soon after leaving the boat launch, the winding pond creates a near-wilderness experience with miles of undeveloped forested shoreline. Fish and wildlife include beavers, otters, eagles, osprey, kingfishers, herons, frogs, turtles, bass, and pickerel.
Heading northeast on I-295, take Exit 22 in Freeport/Durham. Turn right onto ME-136 North and drive 6.2 miles. Turn left onto Rabbit Road and continue onto Runaround Pond Road for 1.1 miles. Look for the entrance to the parking area and boat launch on the right. The trails leave from both ends of the recreation area's parking lot.
