Directions: From Water St. in Hallowell turn west onto Winthrop St. Take the third left onto Middle St. (heading south). At the end of Middle St. (0.7 miles) is a small parking area. A trail leaves the parking lot, crosses a field above the Vaughan Homestead, and follows Vaughan Brook into the woods.
Trails and Access: The Vaughan Woods spans the town line between Hallowell and Farmingdale. In Hallowell, the trail starts at a small parking lot at the intersection of Middle St. and Litchfield Rd. In Farmingdale, the trailhead is next to the tennis courts behind Hall-Dale High School. Both access trails connect into the main loop trail, which is about 2 miles long. There are also a number of ancillary trails. All of the other trails are easy to moderate walking.
Dog Policy: Local ordinance requires dogs to be on leash or under voice command. Please pick up after dogs.
