My husband and I just both got bikes and were at a family outing the day before in Augusta and decided to try out the trail. It was a beautiful trail and a great first ride. We will definitely be back!
I love this trail. Its quiet. Along river. Can here the wildlife. All ages out and about. Biking. walking. jogging. strollers. Next to a dairy joy👍
So 15 degree weather does not stop us!
Started at otter pond and skied to Gambo Field.
Beautiful blue sky and crisp air. Maine the way it should be. Met a few snowmobiles and only a few other brave walkers. I love this trail and feel so blessed to be able to walk out the door and have this great place to play.
We rode as a pair from the Kennebunk Elementary School, which is at the southern end of the trail - marked as "mile 28" northward.(It's about .2 miles from the parking lot) Aside from crossing over Rt. 95 just at the base of the trail, from then on it was flat, perhaps a slight grade up while heading north. The surface is sand, and fine gravel. There are a few benches along the trail. Very scenic trail with dense woods and streams. It's an easy trail, with no hills to climb, if that's what you're looking for. I recommend it.
Having ridden bike paths all over New England, I've enjoyed many wonderful experiences towing my toddler in his trailer. My wife and I rode this southern section starting in Standish, and we were generally disappointed. There is little to see, aside from a field and a bridge over a pond. The path had a few potholes and places where a safety fence were falling down. It also doesn't really lead you anywhere interesting, like a place to eat or a town to explore. We wouldn't return to ride this again.
We parked at Kennebunk Elementary School, cycled to Biddeford, and had a great breakfast at All Day Breakfast Two, just a couple of blocks from the trailhead, before returning to Kennebunk. The trail is in excellent condition. We used our regular road bikes with no trouble. A highlight was the sight of a fox sauntering down the trail!
I wasn't sure if dogs were welcome on the Fryeburg end of the trail, but I brought her with me. Unfortunately the DEER FLIES were horrible! It looked like such a nice walk. I will try again another day, with bug spray!
June 9, 2016; This paved trail is a gem for those who live in the surrounding Lisbon area. There are multiple lots to park easily, as the guide suggests. It was my first rail trail, since I have started to take riding more seriously. Great trail, new pavement, beautiful landscape and river, very pleasant folks and no obstacles on any part of the trail. I was able to carve out 8.3 miles (biked the trail twice and added a couple investigative turnouts). I would highly recommend it to others and will do it again, if I find myself in that area. Happy trails!
It's a nice trail and you have access all around the trail. The trail leads to a camp so it's a big trail to drive on but there are all these small trails on the side that you can walk down that lead all over the place.My favorite side trail is the train tracks and it leads to the the lake and the bridge.I have been there lots of times only been on the side trails one time and have never made it to the end of the drive part but it is still lots of fun.
As of May 2016: A little hilly, pebbly, and some rough pavement north of the park means this would be tough for inline skating novices; ok for experienced skaters, but had to use brakes quite a bit. A couple of sharp turns at bottoms of hills in places. Nice pavement south of the park but a little pebbly (edges of trail have some kind of fine crushed stone that tends to get on the trail) and still some hills. Far northern sections along road were fairly smooth but got kind of narrow at the stream crossing so we turned around there. Scenic and pleasant trail - but not a cruiser.
The Centennial trail is very close to our home so we enjoy walking on the trail multiple times each week. This trail's accessibility is weather dependent. The railroad bed is flat and the 'superhumus' bark mulch surface is accessible to individuals in wheelchairs when it is not snow covered.
During the winter many people snowshoe, ski, walk and run on this trail so the path is well used and snow becomes packed. This surface becomes slippery when it freezes and ice grippers for your boots are recommended. The trees along the trail provide a nice wind break.
Many people walk with dogs, not all dogs are on leashes. More than one dog has wandered the short distance through the woods and broken through winter ice into the Kennebec River.
The river is visible through the trees along the entire length of the trail. Children should be made aware of the dangers of ice and moving water.
Individuals with visual impairments should not find this path difficult to follow. There are many people who walk on the trail every day and clean obstacles such as trash and fallen branches out of the way. The trail mile marker posts may not be visible to those users with limited vision.
Regular walkers are friendly and respond to greetings. Bundle up and enjoy your winter walk!
Like many of Portland's trails I feel that looks can be deceiving. You think, "How can walking a trail in Portland, a city, be interesting?" I have never been disappointed when choosing from one of Portland Trails' walks. Tucked away near outer Forest Avenue this trail offers a peaceful getaway. The majority of it is level and sandy and there is one steep slope at the far end of the trail where it branches off to a connector trail. I often see joggers, dog walkers and people on mountain bikes but the trail has never been crowded or seemed "busy".
In the winter you can snowshoe, ski the trail as well as skate on the pond.
It has two small ponds near the trailhead on Harris and I have seen a variety of ducks, both green and blue herons, and lots of smaller birds there. Winter berries offer a splash of brilliant red along the banks of the ponds during the fall, There is a small stream near the end of the trail and plenty of nice places to stop and birdwatch.
