Connor Mill Trail & Preserve
This popular trail in Unity near the intersection of Main Street (Route 9) and Quaker Hill Rd. features access to Sandy Stream, colorful ephemeral wildflowers in spring, an old Mill Site, and two loops totaling up to three miles through silver maple-bur oak floodplain and mixed woodland. A new seasonal crossing over Bacon Brook was erected in 2016 with financial support from the LL Bean Maine Grant Program administered by Maine Coast Heritage Trust. The bridge is only in place from spring to fall due to ice and flooding damage during winter, but the east loop is open year-round. High water in spring and poison ivy in summer may present hazards.
Connor Mill Trail was first created by the CommUnity Trails group hosted by Unity Barn Raisers. Since 2009 it has been conserved by trail easements granted to SRLT by landowners Don & Pat Newell, Arlene & Charlie Schaefer, Sarah Oliver and Kate Coseo & Marty Maines. Please do not pick fiddleheads along the trail. We ask fishermen and hikers to pack out what they pack in and leave the site as you found it.
SRLT volunteers worked during 2021 with a Maine Conservation Corps crew to replace seven decrepit bridges thanks to a grant funding from the Onion Foundation. Nokomis Regional High School students also assisted with bridge work that MCC did not complete.
