Description

The Lincoln to Oromocto Trail is one of the old railbeds that are now managed by NB Trails. The trail travels through the woods and through several subdivisions. It passes streams, beaver ponds and follows the fence on one of the run ways at the Fredericton Airport. There are not supposed to be any ATV's on the trail but it looks like ATV's use the trail often.
