The trails at this extraordinary Western Foothills Land Trust property give you the chance to go for a walk and visit the Bridgton Historical Society’s splendid old Civil War-era farmhouse. The house is situated at the end of a long sloping field, with views of distant mountains. During the summer, you can go on regularly scheduled tours. After that, the house museum is open by appointment.

Close to the large parking lot, you’ll find the kiosk for the trail system. The half-mile trail around the meadow above the farmhouse is wheelchair accessible, and is a beautiful walk, as it offers the same sweeping views the farmhouse has of the mountains. If you want to visit old granite quarries, you can head up an old track for .4 miles until you get to a .8-mile loop. This part of the trail is not wheelchair accessible.

Directions: The address is 46 Narramissic Road, off of Ingalls Road.
