Down East Sunrise Trail Fall Folliage Ride - October 22, 2011

The Down East Sunrise Trail runs along Down East Maine and is over 87 miles long.  It extends from Washington Junction to Ayers Junction.  The trail accomodates a variety of users from hikers, bikers, to snowmobilers.  On October 22nd there will be a Fall Folliage Ride for ATVs and Bikes.

"This ride covers one of the most spectacular sections of the Down East Sunrise Trail. The ride highlight is Schoodic Bog and scenic views of Schoodic Mountain. ATVs will start at 9:00 a.m. from Washington Junction and will have passed the Franklin-Route 182 Trailhead by the time the bicyclers get on trail. Each group will spend some time in the area of Schoodic Bog to take in the fall foliage, lunch, and learn about fall colors and trees from our Forester guides. Bicyclers will continue to the Rte 183-Tunk Lake Trailhead before turning around. The ATVs will continue on to Cherryfield before turning around. These rides are co-sponsored by the Sunrise Trail Coalition, Maine Forest Service and Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands."
