This is a cool set of singletrack that is in-between a network of double track. Not a ton of riding but great after work riding. From the lot, follow the dirt road toward the water. You can either take the entrance on the left, or follow the double track on the right. I prefer the left entrance. From there, you will cross a small stream. Continue straight. You will see the entrance to the single track on the right. It is a pretty sharp uphill turn.
There is no trail map so exploring is the key. The "Bucket trail" is a must ride. Fun, flowing, and twisty. Look for the metal bucket hanging from a tree. The network isn't big enough to get you lost but it is enough to keep you interested for an hour or two.

From Water Street in Hallowell, take Central Street west, up the hill 1.5 miles. Turn right on Town Farm Road, and go 0.5 miles to Reservoir Road, on the left next to a small, square pond. Alternately, you can take Winthrop street 1.4 miles from downtown Hallowell, turn left onto Town Farm Road and go 0.2 miles to Reservoir Road. Reservoir Road is gated off-season and a small parking area to the right of the road offers space for about 8-10 cars. During the summer, drive up Reservoir Road about ¼ mile to a gravel parking area next to the beach.
