Length: 1.5 miles
The Hilton O’Connor Trail meanders through the 47-acre Bremen Town Forest. Dedicated in memory of Diane Hilton O’Connor, who was a long-time member of the Bremen Conservation Commission, the trail features mixed forest types, a salt marsh, a hay meadow, and a winding brook.
Managing organization: Town of Bremen
An easy to moderate trail, peaceful and quiet, with a variety of forest types and opportunities for birdwatching. There are some impressive red oaks along the trail and delightful fern alleys, bubbling brooks, and a winding salt marsh along the eastern edge of the forest. In late summer, look for monarch caterpillars in the meadow.
Directions to Trailhead:
From Business Rt. 1 in Damariscotta, turn onto Biscay Road at the traffic light (by McDonalds). Travel 3 miles and just after Biscay Pond, turn left on to Turner Road. The Bremen Town House and Fire Department will be on the right after a little over 2 miles. Parking is at the Town House. The trailhead can be found in the picnic area in the woods just behind the Town House.
