Bradley Pond Farm Preserve was created in 1991 when Frederick and Florence Call granted a conservation easement on their 163 acres of farmland to the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust. A 2.5-mile network of trails surrounds the property. The property is still a working farm with a private residence, so you should stay on the trails. No dogs are allowed. The trails traverse hardwood and softwood forests and provide views of Bradley Pond, the Cathance River, and the surrounding wetlands. Black-throated Green Warblers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Red-eyed and Blue-headed Vireos are typical. Hermit and Wood Thrushes breed on the preserve and are often heard at dawn and dusk. Northern Waterthrush can be found in the wetlands and Bank Swallows have nested in the quarry. Bobolinks multiply in the fields.
Directions: Proceed north on Route 201 5 miles from the Androscoggin River and look for the entrance on the left. It is another 0.75 miles along the access road to the limited parking area.
