Description

Leave Wild River Campground and follow the Wild River Trail to the south following an old railroad grade along the banks of the Wild River to Spider Bridge, (2.7 miles). Cross Wild River on Spider Bridge and turn north (right), on the Highwater Trail which follows the west bank of the river. There are many vistas of Wild River and the mountains to the east along this section of trail. At the Wild River Bridge north of Moriah Brook, cross Wild River again to the east side, turn north (left) back to the campground. The Wild River area has a rich history that includes the boom of the old logging days and the site of L.L. Bean’s hunting camp, where the Maine Hunting Shoe was conceived and tested. Can you imagine the sights and sounds of the bygone era as hike down the old logging railroad bed?
