Map shows trails in Sagadahoc County

  • Transfer Station Trails — Miles of trails here, some of them unmarked. Some of the trails are designed for mountain bikes (thus, are very squiggly!). Dogs allowed.
  • Recreational Fields Trail — The trails at Topsham Recreation Fields run for a couple of miles. Dogs permitted.
  • Cathance River Preserve and River Corridor Trails — Lovely and long, this a great walk. No dogs allowed.
  • Bradley Pond Farm Preserve — Here you can walk the perimeters of a farm’s fields, as well as look out over Bradley Pond and surrounding wetlands. Dogs not allowed.
  • Ravine Trails — It kind of feels like you’ve stepped into an enchanted place when you leave the curb behind for the Ravine Trails. You’re close to commerce and development yet enveloped in quiet, lovely nature here. Dogs allowed. Trail network about 1.5 miles.
  • Town Landing Trail — A .3-mile trail along the Androscoggin River. Dogs allowed. Be sure to park at 29 Elm Street or by the old fire station on Green Street.
  • Topsham Bike Path — This paved trail will one day connect Main Street to the Androscoggin River Path, via the Highlands community.
  • Androscoggin Brunswick-Topsham Riverwalk — A .6-mile paved path runs along the Androscoggin River in Topsham. Cross the long pedestrian swinging bridge and do a loop, all on paved sidewalks, including across the antique green FJW bridge, for a 1.25-mile in-town walk. The whole way is wheelchair accessible.
  • Mt. Ararat School Trails — There are more than three miles of wide, hilly trails behind the high school. There’s an old fire tower and a modern radio tower on this land, and, unfortunately, quite a bit of litter.
  • Tarbox Preserve — Off Route 24, this one-mile loop includes views of the curvy Cathance River.
  • Topsham Town Forest Trail — Unmarked, probably not-often-visited trail near the Lisbon border and powerlines. The highlights: two large fields and Little River.
