The Bradbury-Pineland Corridor consists of a network of both polished and rough trails that connect Bradbury Mountain State Park (Pownal) to the Pineland Public Reserved Land (Gray, North Yarmouth, New Gloucester). The trail originates in Pownal at Bradbury Mountain State Park, heads west over Tryon Mountain and past the scenic Tryon fields (Pownal), and then joins with the CMP power line where the trail heads south along Thoit’s Brook and Chandler Brook. The trail then connects to the trail network at the Pineland Public Reserved Lands Unit in Gray and North Yarmouth.
Various side trails or spurs extend from the main corridor, including trails managed and maintained by the Royal River Conservation Trust thanks to deed trail easements on private land.
Bradbury Mountain State Park provides an exceptional mix of camping, recreation, picnic areas, playgrounds, and more. The Corridor trails are managed primarily by the rangers of Bradbury Mountain State Park. Foresters from the state’s Public Lands division manage the Pineland Trails and have an important role on the Corridor as well.
Trails in the Bradbury-Pineland network are primarily for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. Especially in Pineland Public Reserved Lands Unit, only narrow planks help hikers and bike riders cross wet spots. Allowed uses on some trails in some locations along the Corridor also include skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding, and snowmobiling.
Please note that some of these these trails, especially those snowmobile trails along the CMP powerline corridor, will never meet the expectations of the average hiker or bike rider. They may be wet, and may not be mowed. There is a lack signage for easy navigation except when snowmobile tracks are obvious.
