Located at the site of a once thriving, self-supporting community in East Madrid, Maine, is the Perham Stream Birding Trail, a Sandy River Land Trust project which makes for a wonderful walk. Streams, open fields, and great mountain views await in this flat, quiet place with lots of bird habitat (over 60 species counted for). Grab a pamphlet at the kiosk and enjoy the self guided tour at your own pace.
To get there:
Turn onto East Madrid Road (at the Bruce Manzer hot mix plant sign) off Route 142 in Phillips. Travel on the East Madrid Road for a bit under 5 miles, and parking is on the left just after a small bridge crossing Perham Stream.
