Trailhead

The Tree of Life Trail is located on the grounds of Franklin Memorial Hospital at the intersection of ME Route 133 and US Route 2/ME Route 4 in Farmington. At the traffic light, turn into the entrance for the hospital and take the first left onto Hospital Drive. There are several entrances to the trail on the left hand side of the road. Parking is available adjacent to the Medical Arts Building on the left or by following the road all the way to the back of the hospital.

Description

The Tree of Life trail network offers a quiet oasis, just off US Route 2/ME Route 4 in Farmington near the Franklin Memorial Hospital. Towering Red Pine trees and a variety of flora surround trail, and there are two footbridges that crosses a small stream. Signs of wildlife including deer prints are common throughout the spring and summer. Several sitting areas can be found along the trail and include benches and Adirondack chairs. 

From the gate at the north end of the trail system, you can connect to the Whistle Stop Trail and continue north to Farmington or south to Wilton and Jay.

These are well graded and packed trails suitable for strollers and young kids learning to mountain bike, especially over the weekend when the hospital is not busy. Definitely connect to the Whistle Stop to extend your time out on trail.
