Farm Description

With stunning views of Flagstaff Lake and the Bigelow Mountains, Jerome Brook Forest offers a prime recreational location adjacent to the Appalachian Trail and an easy walk through adjoining public land to the lake shoreline. The property is in an area of western Maine well-known for its many year-round, outdoor recreational pursuits within the vast forests and on the numerous lakes that grace the landscape. While relatively remote, the forest is a straightforward drive to Kingfield, the nearest town with basic services, including convenience stores, motels and restaurants. Maine’s largest city of Portland is roughly 2½ hours to the south and Boston, Massachusetts, is about 4½ hours to the south.

The property benefits from over 4,000’ of paved road frontage along Long Falls Dam Road. Near the southeast corner of the property, a gravel road provides access from the road to a large open area near the northern border. The internal road system has been well-maintained and is currently passable by most vehicle types.

The property’s moderate terrain ranges from flat to gently rolling and faces north towards Flagstaff Lake and Blanchard Mountain. The property is well-suited for someone seeking a prime recreational property with immense privacy, broad lake and mountain views and easy access to year-round outdoor recreation. Of particular note, the property includes a short section of the Maine Huts and Trails system near the eastern boundary. And the renowned Appalachian Trail (AT) passes within several hundred feet of the property. The Bigelow Range hike is one of the AT’s most famous sections and is directly accessible from the property.

Jerome Brook flows year-round, paralleling much of the forest’s eastern boundary. From the upper slopes of the property, views of Flagstaff Lake are available from a recently cleared area. While there is no direct frontage on the lake, a relatively small strip of public land sits between the western boundary and the lake, creating a short, two-minute walk to the shoreline. Alternatively, it is a short drive to numerous public boat launches for further lake exploration. The majority of the forest has been recently thinned with some clear cut areas. The resulting forest supports a mix of hardwoods and softwoods in the sapling to pole sizes. Spruce, fir, cedar and associated hardwoods grow primarily along the riparian zone adjacent to Jerome Brook. Northern hardwood species of beech, birch and maple occupy the upper slopes where soils are well-drained.
