Trail Details

The trail on the Rogers Property is part of the Cathance River Trail, accessed from Head of Tide Park. Most of this trail is on privately owned, conserved land, so stay on trails and observe posted use restrictions. This 2 mile section of trail leads to the impressive 60-foot aluminum Clay Brook pedestrian bridge which was locally designed and fabricated.

Across the bridge lie an additional five miles of trail at the Cathance River Preserve.

Directions to Head of Tide Park: Cathance Road, Topsham. Coming from the south, parking areas are located on the right just before short bridge over the river, and on the left just past the bridge (across from picnic table shelter).
