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 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.

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!
