Narrow Gauge Pathway, Carrabassett Valley
The Narrow Gauge Pathway is a non-motorized point to point trail. At 6 miles in length there's a gradual uphill if you start at the Town offices near the Library. The trail links with other trails that give one a more challenging down hill ride back to the start.
The Pathway is a great first introduction to Carrabassett Valley. It's very scenic and great for families with young children.

But don't think of this trail as only a straight line on an abandoned railroad bed. It's much more than that. Yes it's flat, or gently sloping, BUT leading off it are a growing number of easy to difficult purpose built mountain bike singletracks. Among these are the Grassy Loops, Camel Humps, Sargent's and Caboose and more as yet unnamed trails are under construction right now.
