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.

This trail is adorable. I had discovered it two years ago while four wheeling on the Whistle Stop Trail, and wanted to see it ever since. Love the name too!
It’s a super easy trail to walk on with little benches throughout. I loved today as the foliage was beautiful! Walking in the fresh leaves and taking in that autumn smell was wonderful!

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.
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures in Maine!
