This trail offers a more natural setting for those looking for an in-town trail that will connect to miles of off-road hiking and biking being created by Madawaska on the Move. The trail begins at the Madawaska Recreation Center and leads users through the facility's athletic fields. Then after crossing 3rd Avenue, the trail winds through forest and ends at the Cross on the Mountain for unparalleled scenic views of the river valley.
This trail is also used by ATV riders.
This trail passes through a property that was acquired in part with funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program. For more information about the LMF program and the places it has helped to protect, please visit the LMF webpage.
