High Peaks Alliance and University of Maine Farmington created this 0.6-mile Universally Accessible Trail as a part of the trail system around Prescott Field located on the University of Maine Farmington’s campus. The trail starts in a river floodplain and takes visitors through a silver maple forest, across a bridge, and to a swimming spot along the Sandy River. The surface of the trail consists of crushed rock and is six feet wide, with a maximum grade at 7.5% for 200 feet. The trail is partially funded by the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund and was built to meet national accessibility standards. There is a map of the trails located at the trailhead. Users can explore the nearby trails located on Prescott Field though they are not universally accessible.
