Leaf peeping is the most beautiful time of the year in Maine, and it will be here before you know it.

Just a personal opinion, but fall is my favorite time of the year. Crisp days, football, and of course, amazing foliage. There are people in many parts of the country that don't get to experience the beauty of the changing of the seasons in Maine, so I consider myself very lucky.

Celebrating over 150 years of railroading, the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad offers some fun weekend trips from their location in Unity. Just about every weekend from Memorial Day until the end of October, they host fun events, and if you haven’t had the pleasure of a good train ride, this is right up your alley. It really is a treat to experience this.

Enjoy the colors of the fall foliage season on a round trip scenic train ride as the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad takes you through the changing fall vistas of the woods, streams, and fields of Waldo County.

This one-hour trip is $20 for adults, $9 for children, and those 2 and under can ride for free!
