The trails in Cumberland, Falmouth, and Windham are very well connected, either by footpath or snowmobile trail. In my map above, Knight’s Pond Preserve is in light blue; Farwell Forest is in lavender; Rines Forest in green; Hadlock Forest in red; Falmouth Town Forest trails in dark blue; and Falmouth Community Park trails in orange. Not shown on this Google map is how this network connects to a trail system on the western side of Route 100, which includes Blackstrap Preserve, North Falmouth Community Forest, and Lowell Preserve.

Here is my attempt at a map that roughly shows the multi-town interconnected trail system.

This little wooded trail at the town forest, with a boardwalk, connects to a vast network of trails that sprawl throughout Falmouth, Cumberland, and Windham. The land trust has done a remarkable job of making it possible to walk or ride a mountain bike for several uninterrupted miles.

Directions: From Route 9, take a left on Winn Road. Go 1.7 miles and the trailhead will be on your left. The trailhead to Hadlock Forest is on the right.


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