Evans Notch Road (Route 113) – Bethel ME

Description

State Rt. 113, Evans Notch Rd. from North Chatham to Gilead, was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in 1936 under the US Forest Service and, while scenic, can be narrow and winding. It was constructed from a former logging trail and partially on the ROW of a logging railroad built by Major Gideon Hastings that was abandoned in 1904.
