Carroll Farm Trail at Sweetgrass Farm Winery, Union


  • Preserve Size: 70 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .9-mile loop (some along the road)
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: fields, winery

There is not much of a trail here, although the staff at the winery are very accommodating if you want to park in their lot and go out for a quick jaunt. The Medomak Valley Land Trust trail passes through the fields behind the winery, crosses through some woods, and deposits you a bit down the road, which you can follow back to your car for a .9-mile walk. Check out the store after; I bought a bottle of apple wine and was tempted by the cranberry-apple one as well.

Directions: From Route One, Waldoboro, heading north on Route One take a left onto Route 220 north and follow it for approximately ten miles. Take a right on Calderwood Rd, just after crossing Route 17. Continue for two miles and take a right on Old Union Rd, followed by a left onto Carroll Rd., which will be your second left. Parking can be found at Sweetgrass Farm Winery, or on the northern side of Carroll Rd. just after crossing the Medomak River.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
