Join us on Sunday, August 16th at 4 p.m.. for the “trail less traveled”. The Nuns Farm Loop is named for the Community of the Resurrection sitting high atop Poplar Ridge with a spectacular view of Mt. Washington. This ride is decidedly different from all others that we offer.
You will travel 100 ft or more through One Mile Brook and climb up the bank to connect to an old tote road. This will be a long hill, grassy and many low branches. Grassy trails are unusual here, especially on such a long hill. most trails are beaten by ATV’s or sandy in Jugtown where its lower and flatter. This trail ends on Poplar Ridge Rd, a dead end gravel road in Otisfield. Next you will see the view of Mt. Washington and maybe some sheep or cows in the pasture at the farm atop the ridge.
As you turn for home you will once again return to a wooded and grassy trail on your way back downhill to the pipeline. The pipeline is wide and open, rocky and affords some nice views of the hayfield in back of our farm. But even though you can see it like a shiny green emerald up ahead, you are still about an hour away.
As you leave the pipeline you will enter Jugtown Forest and the wide sandy trails it is famous for. Take a last trot or canter and cross the One Mile Brook once again climbing the hill home.
