Directions to Training/Test Grounds

For all outdoor clinics and tests, we meet first at the main training fields located in Smithfield, Maine.  After check-in, members can go to other training sites.

Smithfield Training Grounds (1014 Village Road, Smithfield, Maine):

  • Via I-95, Take Exit 127 (Waterville/Oakland)
  • If coming from the North, turn right at the bottom of the ramp onto Kennedy Memorial Drive (Rte. 137)
  • If coming from the South, turn left at the bottom of the ramp onto Kennedy Memorial Drive (Rte. 137)
  • Go through Oakland, traveling 8.7 miles to intersection of Rte. 137 and Rte. 8
  • At that intersection turn right onto Rte. 8
  • Proceed 3 miles to Smithfield Village and continue 0.9 miles past the Smithfield Post Office and the Ice Cream Place to the test/clinic field on Rt. 8 on Right.
  • Pull down the gravel entrance, past the old barn to the parking area at the top of the knoll.

Charles Farm Water Training Site (Charles Farm Trail, Rome, Maine)

  • From the Smithfield Training Grounds
  • Turn left out of the Smithfield fields onto Rte. 8.
