The Hadlock trails are a growing hiking/biking network in the Hadlock Community Forest, an actively managed forest. The singletrack trail rolls through small hills and passes many productive ephemeral ponds. The access trail from the parking lot leads to a series of nested loops of different length. Older snowmobile trails criss-cross the forest but these are generally in poor shape for hiking or biking. The nested loops also provide access to the Cross-Falmouth Trail. Going north, this trail leads to the Cumberland town line where a snowmobile trail that is in excellent condition leads to Range Road. Going south, the Cross-Falmouth trail crosses a powerline corridor and runs through a very wet forest adjacent to the Falmouth Country Club before exiting at the Winn Road trailhead.

What a great find! We landed here accidentally today, and already I want to go back. Well groomed and marked trails. Just a couple miles for the entire loop, so totally family-friendly. Perfect on a fall morning and I can't wait to check it out in winter, as well. 15 minutes outside Portland.

A well marked series of loop trails. Intersections have a kiosk with trail map showing where you are. Excellent trail for fat tire winter mountain biking. Several tracks were visible when I was there although I saw no one on this day.
