Ordway Grove, Norway


  • Preserve Size: 9 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~.7-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Pennesseewassee Lake, very old white pines

This is a .7-mile or so walk that includes a few places to look out over Pennesseewassee Lake. Supposedly the White Pines here are some of the oldest in Maine — and a few do look quite big. If you’re walking counter-clockwise, the first viewpoint off to your right can be quite swampy and wet. There are drier places ahead to get close to the lake.

Here’s a nice description

Directions: From Main Street in Norway, turn right on Pleasant Street. The trailhead is about 0.2 miles on your left and is marked with a small sign. You’ll walk to the right of a private home, and about 100 feet or so into the woods, you’ll see the trail kiosk. Park to the side of the road.


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