The trail is built on the old Burlington-Northern railroad line. The Machias trailhead and rest stop is a replica of the railroad depot built in the late 1890s that once served the rail line which today is the Centennial Trail. Development of the trail began in 1989 during the state's centennial. The trailhead and rest stop in the town of Machias is a replica of the Machias Station railroad depot built in the late 1890s which served the rail line which today is the Centennial Trail.
