Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust connects people by conserving open spaces and creating trail systems, providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, and protecting wildlife habitats in coastal Hancock County, Maine.


From Monday, September 20 until Tuesday, October 12, the Valley Road will be closed at Cascade Brook Bridge

(1/2 way between Flag Hill Road and Toolshed Landing and outhouse and 1/2 way between the North and the South Gate)

There will be workers and heavy equipment on the road. Please give them wide berth. They will be working hard to meet a deadline for getting the new bridge built.

Wildlands South Gate open to Drumlin Trail (about 1.0 mile in)

7 am – 6 pm, Sundays: May 30 – October 31.
