Walked this trail for many years and they have fix it up nice
My family goes out to Shaw park often and get right on the trail. We can’t wait for the trail to extend past our house in Steep Falls!
Flat, quiet, road crossings are few over the first 8 miles and well lit/marked. No portapotties, which is unreasonable. Lovely ride thru forest and wetlands.
It’s fairly narrow in most spots, but very quiet, and serene.
Plenty of parking at trailhead point off Clark St. in Saco. 8 miles one way to point where the on-rode portion begins in Scarborough. A few complex road crossings in first mile or so then only a few - and calmer - crossings remainder of ride. Scarborough Marsh area was worth the ride. Very even surface, light bike traffic and lots of shade.
So I can only speak to the first 3 miles from the trail head in Kennebunk to mile 3. I ride a tadpole trike and found the obstacles at road crossings either just wide enough with caution to fit to one 3 mile in that I could not fit my trike at all. That means no trikes or wheel chair of any type and I would be very careful if you use a kid trailer. Overall it was a bad experience that did not need to be if the trailfiljs had put any real thought into it!!!
Started at Capitol park entrance enjoying the walkers passing by. All were saying good morning! Great walk paved with asphalt. Follows the Kennebec River. A little disappointed it was by the waste treatment facility.
If you’re going North on 93, don’t go all the way to Exit 40, Route 115. Instead get off at Route 3 East and follow it to Henzel Road as directed. (Note: There is no sign for Henzel Road.) You’ll save about 30 minutes of drive time but miss the quaint village of Bethlehem.
The trail itself is lovely but a little rocky for this 70 year.
I rode this two weeks ago but forgot to review. Before going, I read the review by potterdunn from Oct 2021. Their review was awesome because it gave me the exact details I needed. I rode the Scarborough to Saco leg which is number 3 or lll in their review. There were some Sandy parts but I found them doable and I am not a sand rider! I will ride this section again before the end of summer!
We have used the kennebunk section (to the southern Maine medical center) often over the years. We just returned and someone put down an excessive amount of loose sand that frankly made a 1/2 mile stretch treacherous and I’m not sure what the point was of adding that much sand.
Started from Pondicherry and went east to Randolph and back. Had no trouble with my old hybrid bike on the various surfaces of this section.
Started at Jimtown Rd parking lot in Gorham and biked west on the trail for 4 miles until we reached the beaver pond and then turned around. This section of the trail was wide and in fairly good condition. There were a few areas with gravelly or sandy surface but the three of us did fine on a hybrid, a standard kids bike and a touring bike with wide tires. Grade was steady uphill of 1-2% from parking lot to beaver pond. We biked under tree canopy along a large stream without mountain views for most of this section. There were lovely views of the Presidential range at the pond clearing. Lots of gnats but bugs fine once biking. Overall this was not as easy a ride as the average rail to trail given grade and loose material on the surface.
