Please change to the correct name: the Narrow Guage Trail. It is named after the narrow rail line that used to be where the trail is. It also is connected to many mor miles of single and double track biking and hiking trails as well as the Maine Huts. It is free in the winter a ticket is need for other trails maintained by the Sugarloaf Outdoor center for cross country skiing.

Updated info on this trail: it has been resurfaced and graded with local and state grant money. There are gates at either end to keep out horses and ATV's. It is used a lot by locals, and is known as the Narrow Gauge Path (I don't know where the "Woodabogan" name came from. No fees ever are applied.
