Description

The Long Way Home Trail is a 2.5-mile run through the woods of Maine with rock bridges and quick ups and downs. The backside heads along rolling hills that take you well away from the access roads. No part of this trail is flat and there are many rocks and roots. It stays dry and provides access to several other trails.
