Public access to the historic trails within Vaughan Woods nature preserve is made possible by the stewardship efforts of community volunteers, local students, Scout groups, and the Maine Conservation Corp. These many hands keep alive the tradition begun by William Warren Vaughan, who spent a lifetime building and maintaing the trails. Pictured below is William Warren Vaughan (far right) and his crew of workers on the Corniche trail to the dam. The trails and bridges we know today were built between 1900 and 1930.
