Frye Headwaters Trail


Town: Searsmont

Miles of Trail: 5.35

Connects to: Frye Mountain

Trail Features:

 A true backcountry footpath. This 5.3 mile section of the Georges Highland Path traverses the upper headwaters of the Georges River watershed. You'll walk through majestic white pines, spruce, fir, old growth hemlock and grandiose oak trees. The trail is rich with stone walls, remnants of farms that existed over 150 years ago and forests that are still managed today.  The trail is mostly level but rugged and wet in spots with stream and rock hopping required. 

The current trailhead for Frye Headwaters lies on route 3 at the Old Mill Public House, about half a mile toward Belfast after the turn off from New England Road.

If you want to access the trail from Frye Mountain trailhead in Montville, at the intersection of Routes 3 and 220 in Liberty, follow 220 North for 6.5 miles to Walker Ridge Road on the right. Park at the Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife maintenance building lot.
