Tyler Conservation Area, Readfield


  • Preserve Size: 52 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1 mile in network (including short stretch on road)
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: stone walls, old trees, old granite marker

Tyler Conservation Area is a pleasant wooded area, with a well-marked trail. One spur leads to an old “granite engraved marker,” according to Maine Trail Finder. But I couldn’t find much more information about it. To make a loop, you can walk back along Thundercastle Road, which is quiet.

Directions: From the center of Readfield (at the intersection of Route 17 and 41), go west on Route 17. Turn right onto the Old Kents Hill Road. Take the next right onto Thundercastle Road and look for the land trust sign and trailhead on the right after about 0.6 miles. There is a small parking area.


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