There are official Calais trails (quite beautiful!) throughout the woods and fields of town that are managed by volunteers.

The nearest official trail is a 5 minute walk heading North up our road, or through our fields that follow the road. Cross to the left hand side of the road and follow the blue arrows and C markers across the field and into the woods. This Trail will bring you to Maple Corner.
