Horse Trail in North Maine Woods at Historic Pittston Farm
We are just beginning, we have one trail ready, it is part of our recreational Trail and starts here at our facility. The trail route has recently been changed because of the new multipurpose ATV tail that comes here.
The horse trail is now incorporated with the ATV trail and added many miles, can go from our facility to Jackman, via State of Maine Public Reserve Land, toward Jackman.
The distance of our new trail is about 7 miles one way and maybe to can extend it all the way to Jackman, about 45 miles. (Still to come)

We will be having many more shorter trails but this is a beginning. I will update your with improvements and I hope to have a package developed soon with a Riding stable in Jackman.
There is no cost for use and trail is moderate in difficulty.
We are located West or Moosehead Lake (1 hour) and North or Rockwood, ME (30 min.). on the Northern Road. 04478
