Trails & Maps
Two Echo Property
Two Echo comprises about 97 acres on the south side of Hacker Road. About 67 acres of the undeveloped land are protected in a conservation easement agreement with the town of Brunswick and Maine DEP.
Please Note: we are in the process of updating our trail map as some colors have changed. Portions of the trails near the beaver pond in the upper-left corner of the map have also been re-routed and can be difficult to traverse, especially after wet weather, due to the ever expanding footprint of the pond.
Public Parking and Access
The Two Echo Conservation Land can be publicly accessed from the trailhead on Hacker Road. Public parking is available from dawn to dusk at the Cox Pinnacle parking lot, which is just across the street from the trailhead.
Please do not park in the three neighborhood parking lots on Echo Rd. These spaces are reserved for Two Echo residents and guests only.
While we welcome all members of the public to enjoy this beautiful land, we respectfully ask that you only access the trail system from Hacker Rd and do not use the other trail heads near our homes and other developed areas. Thank you for respecting our privacy!
Trails in the conservation easement are one element in Two Echo’s Common Land Vision for the woods. Two miles of color coded marked trails have been developed.
Common Land Vision
The Common Land Vision is designed to present a broad picture of acceptable uses/changes of our common land that are in keeping with the community’s general objectives, principles and desires, and acceptable locations for such uses/changes. The Common Land Vision is designed to be simply an agreed upon, “big picture” which will be a guide as individuals and the community move forward with the specific uses/changes of the land.
Trails in the woods are cleared and marked for walking, horseback riding, mountain biking and cross-country skiing. Additional trails have been created to access interesting locations within our property such as the large rock in the northwest woods. Picnicking sites develop where community members have found their “favorite spots” along the trails. The trees in the woods are maintained and managed according to our community forestry plan. Firewood and Christmas trees are cut in accordance with this plan and any new trees and bushes planted are in keeping with the management strategies of the plan.
