The Rail Trail begins in downtown Belfast by the footbridge, and runs along the Passagassawakeag River to City Point, following the route of the Belfast and Moosehead Lake RR, a passenger/freight line active between late 1800s to the early 2000s.
Not only a beautiful, picturesque pathway, but the trail offers a range of travel means, from jogging to biking to simply walking--brisk to leisurely stroll. The path also offers wheelchair accessibility (though no motorized vehicles allowed). An excellent four season trail, that also accommodates cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Trail length approximately 2.3 miles.
