Michelle's life is a colorful map of exploration and adventure. From the iconic streets of New York to the sunny shores of Florida, the jagged coast of Maine to the rugged terrain of Montana, she's been fortunate to call some of America's most beautiful states home. Beyond the U.S., Michelle's wanderlust has taken her on a motorcycle journey through India, led her to teach English in Hanoi, and saw her studying Spanish in Guatemala. Michelle graduated with a communications degree from the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and in addition to a career in advertising has worked with OnlyInYourState since 2016, where her love for travel and storytelling converges.

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.
