Hike to the Abandoned Locomotives for an Unforgettable Adventure
One of my favorite adventures is to visit the Abandoned Locomotives “Ghost Trains” of the North Maine Woods. Although it's quite a long drive to get there, it's well worth it. Abandoned in the 1930s, the locomotives now rest in a part of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway between Chamberlain and Eagle Lakes. The hike to the trains is about 45 minutes and there's plenty to see in the area. Interpretive panels explain the logging operations that took place at the site. There are remnants of log cars, a tramway, boilers, and many other abandoned objects trailside and in the surrounding woods. Without a doubt, making a trip to Maine's Abandoned Locomotives should be on everyone's bucket list!
