Milbridge Commons and Sudsbury Trail, Milbridge


  • Preserve Size: ~5 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .3 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Narraguagus River, gardens, gazebo, a cool marble bench

More a destination that trail, both Milbridge Commons and the Sudsbury Walking Trail (which don’t actually connect, but are both downtown) have very short, wheelchair-accessible trails. The .1-mile Sudsbury trail is paved. It follows the wide Narragaugus River and is dotted with a few benches and a gazebo. Milbridge Commons’ trail loops around a huge community garden that seems tended by masterful gardeners. The views of the river are divine, and the benches here are also quite artful. The loop is .2 miles.

Directions: To reach the Commons and its garden, turn onto a short drive that’s across the street from Milbridge Historical Society. There’s plenty of parking here. To walk the Sudsbury Trail, there is parking on the side of the road for two or so cars off of Route 1A.
