awsome for atv bike and walking. people are great and welcoming.
I rode this trail on 20/8/2018. It was a beautiful day and the trail was dry. Having read the warnings about the sandy sections of the trail I took my mountain bike with 650B /2.20 tyres, thinking it would be sufficient. For 11 miles of the trail it was, but I struggled on the sandy sections in Jay, with the front end wanting to wash out as it hit the deeper berms. My fat tyre bike would have sailed through these sections, and should I ride the trail again It is what I would use.
On a hot day the shade of the trees along most of the route was very welcome. I rode from Livermore Falls to Farmington, and then back again, stopping for a quick lunch at the small country store in Wilton village: Where it is very pleasant to sit by the river on the provided benches and tables. The trip took me a little over three hours, the trail being better at the Farmington end, and becoming quite rough nearer the Livermore Falls end.
The guidebook says this is primarily an ATV/snowmobile trail and I think that is a correct summation. It is not a bicycle friendly trail, being too rough and the sand making it all but impossible for anything other than wide tyres
We ventured out for our first rail trial ride and found it easy to navigate as it is marked well. For the conditions, well, that goes with the territory and the sport. There’s going to be some good and bad be prepared to handle any terrain and then your all set after all this is called ATVing.
My husband and myself saw this trail listed in the Rails to Trails magazine, and since we were in the area, we thought we would try it. From the very beginning, the trail was very bumpy, with lots of potholes and large rocks. We were hoping, that it would get better, but unfortunately it didn't. With the exception of a few sections where the trail was ok, this trail is clearly very frequented by many ATVs, and the condition of the trail is not suited for cyclists. We are both experienced riders, and made it to Dexter on the trail. From there we returned on busy Rt7 back to Newport. We just could not face the trail again for the return trip. Worst rail trail we've ever been on!!
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!
Visiting Maine in August we found no place to rent bikes within 80 miles of the Trail. We decided to hike the section from Bingham south as we like free flowing rivers, not lakes behind dams. First issue was the Bingham Goodrich Rd trailhead. It is in the woods and out of sight from US 201 or houses. We chose to park at a more publicly visible location at a Supermarket across from North Country Rivers Outfitters where the Trail crosses a corner of the Outfitters property. We did get permission from the Supermarket and recommend parking here, not the Goodrich Rd. trailhead.
Second, the main issue for us was the Trail. This included the lack of views of this section of the river being obscured by Summer vegetation, the condition of the trail with muddy potholes and lack of a gravel surface and the permitted use of the Trail by ATV’s. The ATV drivers were respectful of hikers and slowed for us, but the vehicles were still noisy and created dust. We terminated the hike early and had ice cream at Here’s the Scoop in Bingham, sitting quietly on the bank of the Kennebec.
Headed south on US 201 to Arnolds Landing where the trail crosses the Kennebec. The trail is on the river bank and would have provided better water views had we hiked this section. Had to leave, as it is a slow drive from I-95. In summary, the Bingham area portion of the Trail would rank as our worst RTT experience from Maine to Virginia. We would not return even for ice cream on the river bank.
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👍

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!
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.
Went to go on a nice day to the trail but the trail is closed until May 30th, 2016. FYI .
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!
