Brunswick Town Commons is another pleasant stroll. It is the remainder of a thousand acre “commonage” granted by its colonial owners in 1719. A large stand of pines shelters the entrance and picnic area, and the trails traverse wetlands, a peat heath, remnants of blueberry fields, and an uncommon Pitch Pine barren. The understory is sparse and it is unusually easy to spy common warblers, vireos, and flycatchers along these paths.
Directions: From the intersection of Routes 24 and 123 in downtown Brunswick, take Route 123 south toward Harpswell 1.6 miles. Look for the parking lot on the right.
