WW&F and Midcoast Conservancy to Celebrate Unique Partnership and Trail Opening!

Join Us for a Fun Fall Hike

On Saturday, October 30, 2021 the WW&F Railway Museum and Midcoast Conservancy will be celebrating their unique partnership with a special run of their popular Ride the Rails to Hike the Trails.

The 11am train departure from Sheepscot Station (97 Cross Road, Alna, Maine) will include a special trip “down the mountain” to Trout Brook Bridge, where a Grand Opening ceremony will take place for the relocated trails through Midcoast Conservancy’s scenic Trout Brook Preserve.

For many years, visitors to Trout Brook Preserve have been able to hike along the WW&F Railway’s right of way. With trains returning to this corridor in 2022, a new “lollypop” loop trail has been built, allowing safe, continued access to the preserve that does not interfere with the railway’s operations.

Following the brief ceremony, visitors will enjoy a guided hike through the preserve, and will return on a later train to Sheepscot.
