Need to Know

The trail experiences frequent ATV use on summer weekends, mountain bikers, and horseback riders share the trail in warmer months, and snowmobilers and cross-country skiers appear when the snow flies. Snowshoeing and dogsledding are also permitted. Both ends of the trail tie into the 1,000-mile-plus-long Maine Interconnected Trail System.

Description

The trail follows the old railbed of the Dexter and Newport Railroad. Starting in Newport, the trail passes through a business district and then some woods before it crosses State Route 7 for the second time and plays peekaboo with the 4,000-acre Sebasticook Lake.

Leaving the lake, the trail winds north another 2.5 miles to the old mill town of Corinna. The trail offers glimpses of a reservoir on the Sebasticook River as it leaves town, and then plunges into woods for about seven miles to Dexter.

The trail leaves town behind, some businesses, and Lake Wassookeag, where you’ll see boaters and swimmers in the summer and people fishing through the ice in the winter. Leaving the lakeside, the trail meanders north for 11 miles through woods interrupted infrequently by farm lots on its way to Dover-Foxcroft.
