Named after the locally famous Gould Paper Company owners who operated a large paper mill at the confluence of the mighty Black and Moose Rivers from 1895 to 1945, this trail runs along an old railroad bed that used to transport people and goods from the regions of many sawmills, paper mills, and tanneries.
