Winter Trail Access
Georges River Land Trust invites the public to strap on their snowshoes, skis, and snow pants and enjoy our preserved land this winter. Check here for accessible trailheads, and visit us on Facebook for the status of grooming. We are plowing numerous trailheads to allow the public to get out and enjoy the snow. These areas are free and open for you to explore. This year we have access in 11 different locations stretching from Montville to Cushing. Here is a list of all the locations:
–Ash Point Preserve, Ash Point Dr., Owls Head
–Gibson Preserve, on route 173 in Searsmont
–Canal Path, Ghent Road, Searsmont
–Appleton Preserve, Route 105 in Appleton
–Frye Mountain, Inland Fisheries and Wildlife building off Route 220 in Montville
–Trolley Marsh Preserve, Route 131 in Warren
–Jack Baker Woods, Beechwood Street in Thomaston
–Thomaston Town Forest, Booker Street, Thomaston
–Langlais Sculpture Preserve, River Road, Cushing
–Mount Pleasant, Mount Pleasant Street, Rockport (road edge plowed)
–Ragged Mountain Trail, Route 17 in Rockport
The only trail that is groomed is the 1.1 mile long Appleton Preserve trail which is perfect for Nordic skiing. Please note that the Mount Pleasant access is a plowed shoulder that allows you to get off the road. Trail conditions can change so please dress appropriately and plan for the conditions.
Meanwhile, check out the grooming footage from this last storm. Please wait until trails freeze again to get back out there!
