Hundred Acre Wood, Brooklin

Yes, this preserve is named after Winnie the Pooh’s beloved habitat! The pleasing trail does in fact take you through a bit over one hundred acres of woods. I appreciate a trail system where the trail designer has thoughtfully created an elegant loop that includes an area’s highlights.

Directions: From the rotary in Blue Hill, turn onto South Street and veer right on Route 172. Go 6 miles before turning left onto Hales Hill Road. Go another .7 miles to a four-way intersection. Continue straight onto High Street. The trail head and parking area is roughly 500 feet from the intersection, on the left.
