12/28/09 Newport-Dover-Foxcroft Rail Trail

This is a 26.5 mile rail trail that runs from Newport to Dover-FoxCroft. Back in May we had done a few miles from the Newport end of the trail and today began at the other end from Route 6 in Dover-Foxcroft. The section we did was mostly woods with a few marshy areas. There had been a lot of snowmobile use (we didn't see any today)so the snow was well packed and made for easy walking. A short section runs near Highway 7 but the rest was a nice quiet walk in the woods. We walked to where the trail crosses Shaw Road and then returned. 3 1/2 hours

Piscataquis River


  1. I like the top photo best...with the birch tree. The Piscataquis River pictures must be from a railroad bridge. I wonder how the fishing is there in the summer?

  2. I don't think it is a railroad bridge but probably there was in the past. I haven't fished in years.
