This Abandoned Railway Hike In Maine Is A Historic Treasure
Summer is a great time to explore Maine’s nature, but there are many trails and routes that allow for year-round discovery. If you want to try choosing some for the fall and winter, consider trying some new things during the summer. This abandoned rail trail is a great option. It’s flat and well-maintained, making it more of a leisurely stroll than an all-out hike. And, like so many things in Maine, it comes with some pretty cool history!
The Old Pond Rail Trail can be accessed year-round, but be sure to stay safe in the elements. It’s best to pull it up on your own GPS to find it, but you can access a map here. Address: 153 Point Road, Hancock, ME 04640.
