“This is a fun, local trail that has very few people ever on it; it takes a few hours, but it is worth the effort.”— Stephen Whitney
Once you are over the highway, turn into the gas station and on the right, the trail starts again in the back. The trail on the west side of town is a lot rougher with tons of technical obstacles and some fun descents. The trail follows the power lines for several miles to where it crosses Route 196 to the south. It then crosses 196 again in less than a mile and continues its way west.
After crossing a stream, you enter the power lines again. Follow the trail for the next several miles. You'll eventually come to an intersection with a Old Merrill Rd; go straight through through the intersection and up the next hill. At the next fork, take a left to stay on the trail to where it leaves the power lines and ends at Ward Rd.
From the end of the trail, you can either go back the way you came or you can take a right on Ward Road and ride on the roads to get to where you stared. It is no longer possible to get to Lisbon from Ward Road, the bridge over the Little River is in bad shape and there is a gate where the land owner is no longer allowing passage, so do not try to get to Lisbon on the road. During the winter it may be possible to follow the power lines on the right to get to Lisbon if you have a fat bike.
