You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Maine

In a state like Maine, there’s no shortage of things to do outside. Whether you live for the summer, or look forward to the winter, you’d be hard pressed to run out of activities. One of our favorite things to do is explore the outdoors. But, we don’t necessarily mean huge Katahdin hikes. If you love being outside there are plenty of opportunities to explore without having to train for months ahead of time. We’ve got miles of easy trails to enjoy and lots of lovely walking paths. We thought we’d devote this article to telling you about one of our favorites: The Kennebec River Rail Trail.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

If you’re looking for more outdoor activities, but nothing too ambitious (because don’t we all just want to slow down and take our time sometimes?) check out these hiking trails under 5 miles.

Note: Thank you to Terry Ross for taking such lovely photos of the trail and the surrounding area.
