Hundred Acre Wood
Named after the famed woods that are home to A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh characters, the Hundred Acre Wood is the first hiking trail the Trust has designed and constructed in the town of Brooklin. This property hosts a nearly .5 mile inner accessible loop trail made of packed crushed gravel as well as a longer outer 1.7 mile loop trail which takes visitors along a more traditional wooded path.
Location and Parking
Hundred Acre Wood (Brooklin): The Hundred Acre Wood trailhead is located on High Street, 0.1 miles from the “four corners” intersection with Hales Wood Road, River Road, and Hales Hill Road. The parking lot is able to fit four vehicles with two additional spaces designated for accessible vehicles such as those with a wheelchair ramp or lift. This trail is available to the public because of a generous gift of land by the Stephen Winthrop and M. Jane Williamson family.
