This trail is right outside my daughters house— hike into high bridge or out to Ken Lockwood Gorge!! What a wonderful resource— great exercise, great views, and who knew it was supported and built by a natural gas pipeline company!! Get out there!

I live close by this trail and use it frequently for biking. It is a formal train line converted to a hiking and biking trail. On damp days, look for naturally formed faces on the rocks on either side of the trail. Some people see...More

You can bike, walk, run or just sit and enjoy the beautiful area. The trees, streams, and fresh air make you feel that you are in Maine with clean air. This is really a hidden gem. Can't wait to go in the fall and winter....More

It can be hit as heck everywhere else but the trail with overhanging trees and leaves creates a nice cool trail to walk, jog or bike ride along. Added benefit is all the little gnome homes that people have left as well as geocaching. Beautiful...More
