The annual Springvale Farm Walk is a great opportunity for the whole family to experience the variety of Maine agriculture while walking through fields, orchards, woods and pastures.  It is a four-mile, self-guided walk that connects to ten local farms. Featured farms raise sheep, Christmas trees, mushrooms, vegetables, berries, and apples. They also make cheese, bottle hard cider and make maple syrup.

The path is well-marked and generally follows gentle terrain. Walkers may start and end anywhere. A shuttle service is available. There are a few rough spots, but the trail is certainly walkable by children.  Sturdy shoes are recommended. We welcome dogs on leashes and owners who pick up after them. Parking is available at McDougal Orchards, 202 Hanson Ridge Road, and Carpenter Tree Farm, 14 Hazen Drive – off Blanchard Road.

Three Rivers Land Trust serves a paid breakfast from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at McDougal Orchards. Each farm along the way serves a complimentary refreshing drink for participants. A few of the farms also sell produce and prepared food.

This event is held rain or shine.

Parking and a shuttle service are available.
