Presidential Rail Trail

West End Access

August, 2022 by rfoss_tl

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.

Eastern Trail

Scarborough to Saco

July, 2022 by mattasax

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!

Eastern Trail

Arundel section

July, 2022 by richpeter1957

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.

Presidential Rail Trail

Awesome flat ride with gorgeous views of the Presidential Range

June, 2022 by kristielloyd

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.

Presidential Rail Trail

Lovely trail

June, 2022 by kadashi

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.

Presidential Rail Trail

Great trail

May, 2022 by ldstuart56

This is a great trail, and best for those with fat tire bikes, if doing the entire length. Riding from Whitefield to Gorham , the terrain started with gravel, then became varied, which included some short sections of single track. Throughout the ride, we encountered gravel, cinder, and a couple of patches with sand. The views of the Presidential Range along the trail were great. Be sure to stop at the Cherry Pond Observation Deck!

Whistle Stop Rail-Trail

Rough Trail

May, 2022 by galen.wright74

This, so far, has been the roughest trail I have been biking on since arriving in Maine. As stated in other reviews, portions of the trail, especially on the southern end, are tremendously sandy. This makes it very difficult for biking, even with a good mountain bike. I actually was getting bogged down so bad today that I gave up about 4 miles from the end (I started on the north end at Farmington).

In addition, this trail seems to be a "highway" for ATVs. I probably would have dealt with less traffic riding along US Route 2. In some cases, I had convoys of 5 or 6 ATVs passing me at a time. Getting blasted with exhaust fumes, and being pelted with sand and grit as they sped away was not my idea of a good time. Granted, most everyone was friendly and slowed down while passing me (with just a few exceptions). During my ride, I only encountered one other bicyclist.

Finally, the scenery is so/so. For Maine, its nothing specially. There are a couple of nice bridges. And, I did encounter a beaver den and dam. But otherwise, I have enjoyed several of the other trails much more.

WW&F Narrow Gauge Trail

Neglected trail

April, 2022 by nangelia

Initial trail has a lot of barberry blocking it, then the entire trail became deep mud, and finally it was reasonably clear for the rest of the path. The path had about 5 bridges, 2 were completely rotted through, but I just passed under them since the stream was only a trickle. One area was marked with a Poison Ivy sign, but I did not see any, I think it’s just starting to come out so I may have been lucky and gone early enough to miss it. Evidence that a beaver was munching on some rather large trees. Beautiful view of the river near the end.

Farmington Recreational Rail-Trail

tough ride

April, 2022 by coopers.nh

we parked by the closed plant on Davidson drive.
trail started off soft, some areas quite wet and rutty. Plenty of rocky spots too that make even riding the fat tire bike tough. Trail doesn't appear to be maintained very well. However, there was a nice waterfall off to the side of the trail.

Mountain Division Trail

Lovely Ride

March, 2022 by mac52168

Parked at the Windham Post office and followed the train tracks about 5 miles. Paved trail follows the tracks on the segment I rode on. Part of the trail was still blocked by snow and impassable by bike. Looking forward to riding much further when the snow is gone! Trail goes through woods, past farms and fields and leads to a dam. There’s a small farm called Orchard Ridge along the trail to get drinks and snacks. Lots of quiet neighborhoods to ride around in as well.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

nice ride

goes by some lakes and marsh areas. Different as it goes on and off between rails filled with sand and gravel. beautiful spot at the end with lake winnepasaki.

Eastern Trail

Great trail with some not so great sections

October, 2021 by potterdunn

This is a difficult trail to assign a star rating to as parts of it are great and parts are not. It’s listed as a 29 mile trail but in reality it is split into 5 sections with 2 sections being on busy roads. I’ll break it down by section starting at the southern end in Kennebunk. I. 6-mile off-road section from Kennebunk to Biddeford - 5 stars. This is a great section featuring a well-maintained hard packed dirt trail through the woods. II. 5 mile on-road section through Biddeford and Saco - 2 stars. The first couple of miles are okay as you can ride on a sidewalk and residential streets. If you just do the first couple of miles combined with the first 6 mile off road section, it’s a nice 16 mile round trip. The issue is the next 2.5 miles is on busy roads through the congested areas of Biddeford and Saco. III. 7 mile off-road section from Saco to Scarborough - 5 stars. I’ve been on dozens of trails throughout the Northeast and this is one of my favorites. The trail is hard packed and is in great condition and features a stretch through the scenic Scarborough marsh. IV. 4 mile on-road section from Scarborough to South Portland - 1 star. The first half mile is fine as it’s on a lightly traveled road. But after that, it’s 3+ miles on busy roads that are narrow in spots. I’ve only been on the stretch once and several times a car came with a couple of feet of me - no interest in doing this section again. V. 6 mile off-road section in South Portland - 3 stars. It’s certainly better than riding the streets of Portland or South Portland. But there’s just nothing special about - nothing too scenic until you hit the very end, the trail is in decent, not great, shape, and it’s not well marked. But the biggest negative is the number of times the path crosses busy streets - I’ve never been on another trail with so many busy street crossings over a short stretch. So, the star rating of the trail depends on what you are looking for. If you’re looking to do a round trip of around 15 miles or less, there are two sections that are great - Kennebunk to Biddeford and Saco to Scarborough. If you’re looking to do more than that, you’ll have to deal with at least a few miles of busy streets.
