Getting There

The trail follows the Falmouth-Westbrook town line between Hardy Road and Running Brook Road, with a connecting path to Indian Way. The trail is located in a Town-owned easement on private land along the southwestern border of Falmouth. The trail has not been developed or maintained beyond a simple footpath. This track includes both the Yellow and White Trails.

SUMMER contact # for Town Landing/Harbormaster 781-7317 Falmouth Parks 699-5302

The property contains areas of forested wetlands which makes the trails seasonably unpassable. Dogs must be on leash within 300 feet of any trailhead.

The property is located off Hardy Road about 1/2 mile from Blackstrap Road. There is a gravel parking area on Hardy Road.

The trail itself is alright, but BEWARE!! My dog stepped in some kind of tar or sticky old motor oil somewhere on this trail. It’s been a nightmare trying to get it off. My carpets are ruined, and my dog is sad. Wtf!

Hardy Road Conservation may not be for everyone. I like it because it fits my commute.

Trail apparently borders a horse farm. Met the fellow that owns the horse farm and he explained that he was bulldozing the area for horse pasture. This trail is probably more interesting in spring.

Dog owners don’t pick up after their dogs mess. Watch out for dog poop along the trails

Cool little trail. Some clear cutting made the trail confusing though.

First to Review

Short trek around the remains of a municipal landfill. Not well traveled. The White Trail is well marked but the Yellow Trail markings are far and few between. Nice place for the dogs to run with several small ponds to check out.
