WW&F Narrow Gauge Trail Description

Owned and actively maintained by the Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway museum, this trail meanders along the currently disused railroad right of way through the Town of Alna in the village of Head Tide. The trail passes along the scenic Sheepscot River and through Midcoast Conservancy conservation land. The museum is pleased to share this portion of its right-of-way for non-vehicular traffic until such time it is again needed for its heritage railroad operations.

The trail is across the street from a large conservation parcel maintained by the Midcoast Conservancy. There you will find additional hiking/walking paths.

Parking and Trail Access

Take Route 218 North from Wiscasset, Maine to Alna - a total distance of 7.8 miles (passing the WW&F Railway Museum's Sheepscot Station at Cross Road on your left.) Parking is available at the Midcoast Conservancy lot across the street from the South trailhead. There is no parking at the north end of the trail.

Neglected trail

Initial trail has a lot of barberry blocking it, then the entire trail became deep mud, and finally it was reasonably clear for the rest of the path. The path had about 5 bridges, 2 were completely rotted through, but I just passed under them since the stream was only a trickle. One area was marked with a Poison Ivy sign, but I did not see any, I think it’s just starting to come out so I may have been lucky and gone early enough to miss it. Evidence that a beaver was munching on some rather large trees. Beautiful view of the river near the end.
