Pineland Public Reserved Land

X

Located on both sides of Route 231, the Pineland Unit includes more than 600 acres of land in New Gloucester, Gray and North Yarmouth. This rolling land with its forests and agricultural fields once supplied the needs of the Pineland Center, which it surrounds. Now, this tract of undeveloped land helps fill the growing need for open space and outdoor recreation in populous Cumberland County.

At Pineland, the pleasing landscape of forests over rolling hills invites hikers to explore it. The trailhead on Route 231 provides parking and access to two hiking trails through ever changing woodlands. The variety of habitats on this unit provides the opportunity to see quite a range of wildlife. Upland species include white-tail deer, red fox, snowshoe hare, red squirrel, gray squirrel, ruffed grouse, woodcock, and wild turkey. Where the forests meet the fields, more than 8 miles of edges provide especially valuable habitat for many animals, including bluebirds, meadowlarks, and kestrels.
