|Want a nice walk?|
This trail is 17 miles each way, you will need to carry with you some food and other camping supplies, or walk a long ways in one day.
At the Fort Kent end you'll start near the restored railroad station of the Fish River Railroad, and the trail itself is the former railbed.
You can get to Fort Kent by following route 161 from Caribou to reach the trail head. You could also use route 11 or go to the northern end of US 1. Either way you go you're in for a treat, of course I am biased because I think this is some of my favorite country. I have not walked this trail but I have driven the road that it parallels.
The trail keepers have asked that it not be used in March or April to preserve the surface from ruts or other damage during mud season.
As an aside if you haven't read books by Cathie Pelletier give those a try, very good read, it's fiction based on personal history in part. The books are in a series so check online, or ask your librarian.
