Four Seasons Adventure Trail

Decent Ride

September, 2021 by hollandmp

Rode this on September 1, 2021, from Newport, ME area. Rode 12 miles out on my gravel bike. This is a beginner friendly trail. Not road bike friendly. There are a few sections of loose gravel that can be challenging. Also some sandy spots, but you can power through them. Lots of pot holes and riding on the edges can be helpful.

Kennebec Valley Trail

Decent ride

September, 2021 by hollandmp

Rode this 15 miles from Anson area, on August 27, 2021, on my gravel bike. Really not suited for a road bike. Some bumpy sections and a few sand stretches. Plenty of pot holes. This is a very beginner friendly gravel trail.

Bethel Pathway

easy and pleasant

Auburn Riverwalk

Auburn Riverwalk

April, 2021 by heidifferguson

This is a great place to walk with a wheelchair or stroller, thanks to the tar, cement and brick walkways. I took my mom in her wheelchair and she was able to see swimming ducks, the river and the falls from her chair thanks to the open fencing and observation decks on the bridge. It's a well used trail, and goes past restaurants and apartment buildings. A great place in the city to enjoy nature.

Norway Branch Rail Trail

Norway Branch Rail Trail

April, 2021 by heidifferguson

This is a great trail for strollers or wheelchairs. It's short and crosses main roads, but it's well marked and has a good base for pushing a wheelchair.

Kennebec River Rail Trail

Easy Ride

September, 2020 by slipsoup

We rode this trail from the Water St. parking lot in Augusta. This is virtually the beginning of the trail except for a very short segment that goes down to a park at the river level. The trail takes a break in Hallowell's Granite City Park. There is some historical information here and Adirondack chairs set up to view the river. At the Park, the trail goes onto the street for less than a mile (stay on the main street). There are some really cool old buildings in the town. The trail then goes up to the right. This is a relatively flat and easy ride. It is all paved with few bumps.

Whitman Spring Road Trail

awesome walk with the pups.

September, 2020 by cmesuitlady

This is an old dirt road that’s been gated off at the end of the tar portion. Nice, flat, and wide with occasional views of Lake Auburn. It’s a favorite with local runners. We have encountered a few dogs off leash despite local ordinances so beware of that. A nice early morning walk or run.

Papermill Trail

Bike between Davis St and Frost Mill boat launch to get sweet spot of trail

September, 2020 by curlybrian

Recommend parking at Capital Ave (in the middle of trail) then bike each way. We stopped at School, but trail continues on/along road to Lisbon. There is a nice picnic table near Capital Ave parking lot, right along the river. The section between Davis St and the boat launch is right along the river and has an A+ scenic rating. Trail is lots of short up and down hills, probably not flat more than 50% of the way. Past the boat launch is a significant wooded uphill about 1/2 mile, we didn't need a rest but casual bikers will. That section is not recommended for small children that won't know how to brake. Bring a picnic and enjoy the short trail. No street crossings on the recommended section. p.s. I don't think this is a rail trail, though it goes roughly parallel to track.

Old Narrow Gauge Volunteer Trail

old narrow gauge rail trail in Randolph. ME

January, 2020 by bdhspr

While the Randolph trail starts at the IGA parking lot and is a nice wide walking trail at that point when it crosses the next road parking is very limited (1-2 spaces, roadside) and the trail changes to a narrow walking path that is poorly maintained and eventually changes to a narrow poorly maintained track. Hikers should use their judgement regarding how far they want to continue. This section of trail should be avoided during spring break up and during periods of heavy rain. Hikers should use their judgement as to how far they want to continue especially with small children.

Kennebec River Rail Trail

Fun but easy

September, 2019 by christine13

This really was a very pretty rail trail, with lots of fun stopping places on either end (and in the middle). In Augusta on one end, and Gardiner on the other, and Hallowell in the middle, you have lots of options for food and drink. The trail is super easy and flat. 13 miles round trip.

Four Seasons Adventure Trail

A good hard ride

August, 2019 by drturner001_tl

I rode the trail Newport to Dover-Foxcroft and back on my Trek 29er. Trail conditions were rough in a few spots but all in all an enjoyable ride. Luckily there was light rain the night before or it would have been dusty especially when the few ATVs I met passed me. Everyone was friendly and considerate. The 29er was a good choice since the wider tires and relaxed frame worked well on the Sandy and bumpy sections. With a few short stops along the way and a light snack at the turn around point, it took me a little over 5 hours.
