Bradley Pond Farm Preserve is a 163 acre easement property located adjacent to Bradley Pond, the head waters of the Cathance River. The Bradley Pond Farm easement donors wanted to protect their traditional farm forever and share its pastoral features with the public. The property’s trails, open to the public, pass through quiet woods, providing views of Bradley Pond to hikers and skiers. The Bradley Pond Farm easement protects over 4,000 feet of Bradley Pond shoreline.
Two miles of trails are open to the public, providing views of hayfields, stone walls, and Bradley Pond from the hush of deep woods.
Visitors may see deer and other forest mammals, waterfowl, and forest and field-dwelling birds.
Please respect the landowners’ privacy, stay on trails, and observe use restrictions. The trails are available for hiking and skiing (no vehicles) and there is no water access to the Pond.
Directions to Bradley Pond Farm: End of Bradley Pond Rd, Topsham. The road turns to dirt and curves to the left at the property entrance. There are two gravel parking areas, marked by kiosks, both to the left of the driveway. The preserve is located on privately owned land that is open to the public for hiking and skiing – please stay on designated trails.
