Woods Road Community Forest is the oldest forest stand in Falmouth and one of the oldest in southern Maine. Many of the pine, hemlock and spruce trees growing here are 80-120 years of age. The primary management goal for this property is to preserve the majority of the Forest as a "forever wild" property while doing the harvesting required creating winter browse (food) for deer on a much smaller portion of the property. Allowable Uses: Hunting, hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and nature study are all allowed. Motorized vehicles of all kinds are prohibited except snowmobiles on marked trails. The lower portion of the Woods Road entrance trail is accessible by persons with limited mobility.Trails extend beyond the forest east to the town-owned Deer Ridge property. Hikers and bikers should avoid the area Mondays to Saturdays in hunting season. Dogs must be leashed from April 1st and September 30th. Trails may be closed to dogs in winter to protect wintering deer. The trails are closed to all traffic between December 1 and March 31 per Town of Falmouth, DEP and IF&W. Designated as a deer wintering yard.

A wonderful place for mountain biking with minimal elevation changes but lots of challenges in the twists and turns. The red trail is more challenging than the other trails. Very well marked and easy to follow.
