Property Description: Over 110 acres of mostly forested river corridor property along the East Branch of the Piscatqua River from River Point to the school campus has been protected by the Falmouth Land Trust. A scenic trail, approximately 2 miles in length, runs the length of this corridor. The trail immediately below the Falmouth Road bridge may be muddy or impassable in the wet season. Natural Features: In addition to the usual variety of plants and animals found in Maine woods, the corridor and stream are home to beaver, snapping turtles, ducks and other aquatic wildlife. Eagles or osprey may occasionally be seen fishing in the river. History: Four separate properties make up this corridor, two owned outright by the Falmouth Land Trust and two held in easement. The largest parcel, northeast of the bridge, was donated by the Dr. Donald McCrann family in 1981.
