Maine Rail-Trail Correction

In the last issue we told you about a section of former rail line that was supposed to become a rail-trail, but the state had been outbid by private investors. We’ve now learned that the state has since purchased this property, according to David Soucy, Director of the Bureau of Parks and Lands in Maine. This consists of a 32.5 mile stretch between Houlton and Presque Isle and a 6 mile section between Mapleton and Washburn. Thanks go to Stephen Mitchell in Yarmouth, Maine for alerting us to this new development.
