Location, Parking:  The property can be accessed from two separate locations. A gravel road located between 61 & 65 Babbidge Road will lead you through a gate and further on to a parking area. From there you can follow a wooded road up to the property. The property can also be accessed via trails on the abutting Lowell Preserve in Windham.
 
Property Description:  North Falmouth Community Forest includes ±100 acres of the most remote, and least accessible property in town. As the name suggests, the property is entirely wooded with a mix of hard and softwood species. Except a snowmobile trail, there are no trails yet established on the property.
 
Natural Features:  The property is entirely wooded and home to a variety of woodland species of wildlife, especially whitetail deer. A large vernal pool is also located on the property, as is a small stream that could be considered the headwaters of the West Branch of the Piscataqua River.
 
History:  These properties were used as woodlots by farmers and other area residents until the advent of central heating.
 
Allowable Uses:  Hiking, snowmobiling, mountain biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hunting, nature study, and horseback riding are all allowed. Motorized vehicles are prohibited, except snowmobiles on marked trails. Trails are not handicapped accessible.
 
Cautions:  This is a remote area and it is possible to get lost. Be sure to have a good map and compass or GPS unit with you if you go exploring here.
