Maine's Pine Tree Trail:

An ACT passed by Eighty-eighth Legislature of the  STATE of MAINE 1937

Chapter 43 

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine, as follows: "Pine Tree Trail" designated. The road leading from Portland through Auburn, Lewiston, Winthrop, Augusta, Belgrade, Oakland, Waterville, Pittsfield, Newport, Bangor, Orono, Old Town, Lincoln, Mattawamkeag, and Macwahoc, Route A from Macwahoc to Houlton by way of Haynesville Route B-from Macwahoc to Houlton by way of Island Falls, from Houlton to Mars Hill,-Route A from Mars Hill to Fort Kent by way of Presque Isle, Caribou, and Van Buren-Route B-from Mars Hill by way of Ft. Fairfield, Limestone and Van Buren, is hereby designated as the "Pine Tree Trail." Approved March 29th 1937

Reviving Maine's Pine Tree Trail

UPDATE!!  The order for the minimum amount of 68 signs has been put in for the D.O.T. approved Pine Tree Trail signage, and now we are raising additional funds for at least 32 more signs to make sure the Trail is easily navigated. Any amount you wish to give will be greatly appreciated and will benefit communities on the route! This is the final push, folks!  We are so close to getting the signs up...let's make it happen!

   A BIG thank you to the Pine Tree Trailblazers who donated $1000 each toward D.O.T. approved signage! 

  Currently, over $9000.00 has been raised for the Trail's re-establishment.

The mission is still ongoing as the Pine Tree Trail Community continues to raise funds for the installation and maintenance of said signs.  In 1938, 500 Pine Tree Trail signs were erected along the entire route. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the markers disappeared as well as the knowledge of the route. An original sign was found in 2012, and in 2019 a movement started to bring the Pine Tree Trail back.  Individuals have met with Maine D.O.T. and have gotten the go ahead to privately raise funds for signs that will be re-installed once again.  White Sign Company is manufacturing Maine Department of Transportation road signs for the Trail. You can make your donation to help with extra signs for maintenance by calling White Sign at 207-827-5802 to use debit/credit cards, or by sending check/money order payable to White Sign Company, P.O. Box 261, Stillwater, Maine  04489.  Make sure you specify that it is for the Pine Tree Trail sign account.  If you want to become part of the Trailblazer Legacy Program by donating $1000 or more, please contact us at (207) 765-3383 or message us for more information.  Thanks so much!  Together, we are doing this!!!

Once re-established, the Trail has potential to bring in much needed revenue to Maine. With the added demand for more products and services, job creation will be another added benefit.
