Town Landing Trail (Smart Property), Topsham


  • Preserve Size: Maybe 11 acres?
  • Trail Mileage: ~.3 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Androscoggin River, Silver Maple Floodplain Forest

This .3-mile there-and-back trail can be part of a longer walk that includes the Ravine Trails, Androscoggin Brunswick-Topsham Riverwalk, and the Androscoggin River Bike Path in Brunswick and Topsham. 

This little spur takes you down a rather steep bank right to the river’s edge. It is a quiet, little tucked-away spot. It probably can be a bit wet at times. The small sliver of protected land contains a Silver Maple Floodplain Forest, with “towering silver maples,” green ashes, warblers and waterfowl.  

Directions: From the Brunswick-Topsham bridge, take your first right at the lights onto Elm Street. Be sure to park at River Landing Residences, at 29 Elm Street, or at the old fire station on Green Street, and not at the end of Town Landing Road, as it is someone’s driveway!

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