The Calderwood land is part of the East Freeport trail network protected and maintained by the Freeport Conservation Trust. The trail on the preserve in total is about 1.1 miles, with a longer walk possible if you connect to the East Freeport trail network or walk over to the nearby Chase Reserve. On Calderwood Preserve, you can do a loop in the woods on the west side of the road and a shorter loop on the east that takes you out to a view over Maquoit Bay.

Note, if you do head off to hike the East Freeport trails, you will have to do some of your walking on dirt and paved roads. When you come onto Moose Crossing, take a left to walk a quarter mile or so to Litchfield Road, and go right. You can catch the trail again shortly, at the end of the street on the left.

Directions: Calderwood is on Flying Point Road near the Brunswick town line. Trailheads on both sides of the road are indicated by small signs on posts.  Park on the shoulder of Flying Point Road. For a larger parking area, park on nearby Chase Reserve, east on Flying Point Road.
