The Chessey Property is 100 acres of private property protected under conservation easement by the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust. The property is wild and relatively pristine woodland area. The trail is easily accessible from Hancock Pond Road and is a short half-mile to the undeveloped shore of Browns Pond. Parts are rocky and—depending on the time of year—muddy. The forest is a mix of hemlocks, pine and birch, and as the trail opens up on the shore, clear views of all sections of the pond including the marshy north end. Please note: snowmobiles and motorized vehicles are NOT allowed on this property. Also, please no fires, overnight camping, hunting or trapping, structures or cutting, and please do not litter.

This short walk through dense woods ends at a hidden pond allowing for quiet reflection and the hills in the background reflect on the pond. A small bench awaits for all who make the trip.
