“A rail-trail route surrounded by river, woods, and fields.”— Leslie Kehmeier
The riverbank is forested for most of the next 6.5 miles to just north of Solon, where the trail veers right and crosses the river on an old railroad bridge across rocky Caratunk Falls and a modern hydroelectric facility.
After a 1.1-mile jaunt on Levee Road along a tamed section of river, you’ll pick up the Kennebec Valley Trail again as it enters a more agricultural district. Traveling along the high ground, you’ll catch occasional glimpses of the river in the valley below. After passing through Embden in 2.1 miles, the trail gets rougher in places over the next 4.5 miles until arriving in North Anson.
