Waterhouse Brook Trail, Poland


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: .7 miles (on my map)
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: brook

This trail intersects with the railroad trail, a long straight dirt path. You can pick it up from behind Poland Community School, as well as close to the Poland fire station. There is a kiosk in Waterhouse Park, off Poland Corner Road. If you walk along the road, past the fire station, you’ll see a dirt road on your right. Follow that to the school ball fields — the trail begins at the corner of the field.

Here is what Poland Conservation Trail says (on their Facebook page):

Maine Trail Finder calls it the Railroad Trail.

Directions: From the junction of White Oak Hill Road and Route 26, head north on Route 26 for 0.3 miles until you get to the Poland Community School on the right. Take a right on the last entrance into the school. The entrance to the trail is at the back corner of the school. You can also pick up the trail close to Waterhouse Park, off Poland Corner Road.
