Trail users are invited to visit the trailhead and rest stop in the town of Machias.

This facility is a replica of a railroad depot built in the late 1890s. The depot once served a rail line, which today is the Centennial Trail.


The Machias Trailhead depot facility is available for rent as a picnic shelter.   Across the trail from the depot is a large picnic shelter and children's playground nestled under towering trees. Water and picnic tables are available.  Water is available at the nearby restroom, but power is no longer available.

Please note, water balloon and sidewalk chalk activities are prohibited.


Restrooms are open year-round, but will close during periods of extreme cold.  Please plan accordingly as no portable toilets are available during those times.
