Trail Information:

The Kennebec River Rail trail is a public path that parallels the railway bed that followed the Kennebec River from ASugusta through Hallowell and Farmingdale, ending in Gardiner.
The trail offers an opportunity for hiking, biking and cross country skiing and could easily be used for snowshoeing as well.

The panoramic views for the Kennebec River as well as the historic sites that are seen en route make the trip well worth your time to take.
The autumn leaves from this vantage point make it a prerequisite to bring along a camera to snape photos of the scenery and wildlife along the way.
