Whistle Stop Trail

About Whistle Stop Trail

An old Maine Central Railroad line is the foundation of this fourteen miler between Farmington and Jay. The route takes you through the foothills of the western mountains and rises and falls gradually with the contours of the land. For a time you travel close to Route 2/4, which is a busy thoroughfare, and you skirt the backyards of some homes, but miles are spent under a forest canopy, and views of farmlands and distant mountains are many. The gravel surface is relatively flat and welcoming to most uses, but some of the trail near Jay is on a soft sandy bed, which can be difficult for bikes.
