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.

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.
