SWT: Conserving Beautiful Somerset County

DONE: Weston Woods and Waters

Weston Woods

SWT has purchased 275 acres of pristine forest in Madison with over one mile of water frontage.  If you have paddled the Kennebec between North Anson and Madison, then you have traveled around much of the Weston Woods peninsular. This region includes exceptional wildlife habitat.  It is the largest  Maine Natural Resource Focus Area on the Kennebec River and also is an Important Wading Bird Habitat area.  Once Phase 1 trails are complete, there will be over  3 miles of passive recreational trails.

Weston Waters

Thanks to the generosity of two members of the Weston family SWT has  secured a mile of land and trail easements along the Kennebec River.  Beginning at the town's boat ramp park,  the trail winds along the river to Weston Avenue, just a few steps from the future trailhead into Weston Woods.

And There's More!

The Weston Woods and Waters trail will cross the future extension of the state's Bingham to North Anson rail trail from North Anson to Oakland.  Furthermore, there is an existing snowmobile trail that crosses Weston Woods that will also cross near the new rail trail. SWT plans to support regional efforts to capitalize on this trail system to stimulate eco-recreation for our Kennebec River towns.  The multi-use trails will be accessible from Main Street in Madison.
