The Rock Lake and Coon Lake drive-in campgrounds are located near the trail's southeast end. The reknowned Booth's Rock Trail is at the very end of the bike trailThe Kearney and Pog Lake drive-in campgrounds can also access the trail, by crossing the dam on the Madawaska River.
The new 6 km extension includes an upgraded section of the Track and Tower Trail and ends at Cache Lake to the west.The level grade of the Old Railway Bike Trail makes for a great way to spend a few hours, for young and old. Being graded as an "easy" bike trail, it provides the opportunity for a day's combined biking and hiking, with a packed lunch taken for a mid-day break.
