This forested trail parallels the Carrabassett River. A favorite trail for cross-country skiers in winter, in warmer months the path is enjoyed by mountain bikers and hikers. The Narrow-Gauge Pathway is part of a 50-mile network of cross- country trails managed by the Sugarloaf/USA Ski Touring Center. The trail offers a pleasant respite for nature seekers wanting to spend time in a beautiful part of the Maine countryside. The trail is built on one of the Sandy River/Rangeley Lakes Railroad’s many narrow-gauge routes that originated in Farmington. The railroad company served two primary industries: logging and tourism.
