GREENVILLE, Maine (AP) - Maine officials say the first trail in a new trail network in the Moosehead Lake and Hundred-Mile Wilderness areas will open to the public later this week.

The 1.75-mile trail opens on Friday. The Maine Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Public Lands, the Appalachian Mountain Club and Plum Creek Timber are announcing the new trail. State officials say the network will eventually provide more than 30 miles of trails.

Officials say the network is possible because of land contributed by Plum Creek as part of its land use plan for the area. It also includes land owned by the state and the Appalachian Mountain Club.
