A railway that once hauled Aroostook County’s famous potatoes to market was re-envisioned in the 1990s as a 28-mile crushed-stone pathway. It’s a deep woods route that follows and crosses several backcountry streams between the college town of Presque Isle and the rural outpost of New Sweden. Watch for ATVs and moose, both of which sometimes share the trail.
