Morris Farm Trails and Sortwell Memorial Forest, Wiscasset


  • Preserve Size: +200 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~ 4 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: farm, fields, forest

The Morris Farm Trails link up to the West Wood Trails, offering paths on more than 200 acres of woods and fields on three contiguous properties: the Sortwell Memorial Forest, the Wiscasset Town Forest, and the Morris Farm (owned by the Morris Farm Trust). There are trails marked for walkers (blazed with colors like blue, red, orange and yellow) that connect with trails for snowmobilers. The trails I have here are mostly, like 95%, blazed trails that are pretty well marked. I’ve added two maps below — the second one shows more trails.

Directions: From Route 1 northbound, take a left onto Churchill Street, right before the town offices and police station, and before the junction with Route 27. Go .4 mile and take your first left onto Willow Lane. The parking area will be on your right, .8 miles after you turn. You can also park at the Wiscasset Community Center, which is off Route 27.
