Railroad Trail, Norway


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: .8 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, RR tracks, little park

This trail has been improved since I last visited! It should make for a nice, easy walk close to town. You can link up (if you cross Route 26) with the Viking Trail for a longer outing. The trail ends at a skateboard park. The total length is about 0.8 miles, and is doable for wheelchairs.

Directions: Just off Route 26, stay straight on Main Street heading west (toward the lake).Right after passing Norway Savings Bank turn right on Danforth Street. At the stop sign turn right. You’ll see the kiosk and trailhead on your immediate left. Park here.

  1. The Rail trail has been updated and improved. All of the railroad ties were taken out.
    Western Foothills Land Trust and the town of Norway were involved and WFLT has also acquired Noyes Mtn in Greenwood, which has some trails as well. Check

  2. Thank you for the trail update! I am excited to check it out now that it’s been worked on. (Any excuse to visit Western Maine…)

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
