Crystal Spring Farm, Brunswick


  • Preserve Size: 321 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~5 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: fields, farm, woods, blueberry sandplain grassland

There’s two parts to the trail system here; a south and a north network. While dogs are allowed to the north of Pleasant Street, they are not allowed on the south section because of the animals that live on the working farm here. For a nice map, check out the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust’s map. The farm trails offer views of cows, pigs, goats and great blueberry fields.

Directions: To access the trails on the south (the farm side), park at the farm, or by the gate along Pleasant Street. You’ll see it on the left as you drive in from Maine Street. To access the trails on the north side, take Baribeau Road to the medical offices, and turn in at the drive for Tom Settlemire Garden. Drive to the end of the parking lot here. You’ll see the kiosk and trailhead off to your right, at the edge of the woods. Park in any marked spot. You can also find your way in here from the assisted living community, off Thornton Way. The Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust has done a great job of building walkable, easy trails.
