Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway



Declared a state designated scenic byway in 2007, the Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway is nestled in the shadows of the White Mountains in western Maine along the Saco River and the Mountain Division Railroad and multi-purpose trail. The byway follows 30 miles of the Route 113 corridor, encompassing five towns and two counties and is located 30 miles from Maine’s largest city, Portland. The southern entry of the byway begins at the Two Trails Junction (the crossroads of Route 25 and Route 113) in Standish, where the Scenic Byway, the Mountain Division rail line, and Saco River meet. The Scenic Byway then continues through the charming farm landscapes of Baldwin and Hiram. As the byway continues through Brownfield, it provides magnificent vistas of Burnt Meadow Mountain and the White Mountains. The byway ends in the historic Fryeburg Village, where the traveler is taken back in time. Fryeburg boasts a number of firsts, including the first tavern (1775). Steeped in a rich history, cultural resources, recreational opportunities, and scenic and natural beauty, the Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway may be the one of the most overlooked regions in Maine. This Corridor Management Plan will help promote and market the byway, help identify valuable intrinsic resources, and help identify future needs of the corridor.
