State grant will assist Patten begin new path system

PATTEN, Maine –  Residents and guests to an Aroostook County city can quickly take pleasure in a storied stroll within the woods.

A $40,000 grant from the Maine Division of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Leisure Trails Program will fund a brand new one-third-mile path behind the Patten Lumbermen’s Museum.

Traditionally, the city has been the jumping-off place for loggers, fishers and vacationers earlier than they braved off-grid work and adventures in Mount Katahdin’s shadow. Native officers now wish to improve that connection by including accessible, outside choices just like the Lumbermen’s Path all through the city
