The roughly .9-mile one way track, which is blazed blue, hews closely to the idyllic 25-mile Stream. The trailhead, which starts right by the stream, has a kiosk. (There are two other gated access areas to the preserve farther down Route 139, but they do not have trails.) The wide trail ends at a nondescript point (or perhaps I missed something!) but before you reach the end, there’s a bench by the stream that offers a nice place to end your walk before you turn back. Like many Maine trails in springtime, this area can be wet in spots.
The Sebasticook Regional Land Trust says there is a short trail from the trailhead to the old mill site. I, of course, missed it, as is my way.
Directions: The trailhead is off Route 139, right by 25-mile Stream and a little stream crossing. It’s about .3 miles from the trailhead to Rines Wetland, and roughly 2.25 miles from Main Street in downtown Unity.
