Railroad Trail, Norway

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: NA
  • Trail Mileage: .8 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, RR tracks, little park

Hm, well, the best I can say for this trail is that you can link it up (if you cross Route 26) with the nicer Viking Trail for a rather long walk. I hate to disparage any trail, but this one, which follows old train tracks, was grungy and littered when I visited in November, 2016. I saw one teenager walking along, which I thought was nice at first — trails bringing kids out! — until I saw he was smoking a cigarette and texting on his phone.

The trail ends at a skateboard park, and the day I went, a kid was ripping it up on his board! By the way, you are able to cross the bridge at the start of the trail that has signs warning you not to cross. Just be careful. The total length is about .8 miles.

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.
