Down East Sunrise Trail

Cherryfield to Perry

September, 2018 by dave234

Trails were in great shape and the leaves were just starting to turn color. Highly recommend for a nice UTV ride lots of beautiful sites.

Down East Sunrise Trail

DISAPPOINTING

August, 2018 by ibis23

Disappointing. We had high expectations since this is part of the East Coast Greenway and we have cycled many portions of it from Florida and northward. As mentioned in other reviews, this trail is for ATV's and is not recommended for bicycling. The trail condition was rough due to heavy use by ATV'S. It was rutted, washboarded, and has much loose sand and gravel from the ATV traffic. We were passed by 12 fast moving ATV'S and only saw 1 other bicycle on a Tuesday morning between Tunk Road and Franklin.

Old Pond Railway Trail

Not for Bikes !

August, 2018 by richkinard

It’s too bad that Hancock left all of the rotting ties in place, wasting a great trail for most of the year. Maybe they could find some volunteers to remove them, uncovering a great trail for everyone’s use!

Four Seasons Adventure Trail

wildlife outing

June, 2018 by morristcat

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.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Let's be Honest

May, 2018 by mptjelgin

This is primarily an ATV/ORV track. We tried to bike it on a beautiful Sunday morning in late May and were passed by dozens of ATV's and and ORV's of different sizes. Each time plumes of dust were raised and by the time we decided to turn around (only three miles out) we were gritty and dusty.

This is advertised as a multi-use trail and I guess that it is, but riding a bike (or heaven forbid, walking) is unpleasant and realistically unsafe.

Michael Michaud Walking and Biking Trail

Very scenic path

April, 2018 by meeker_holmes2108

The trail is really colorful, especially during the summer when flowers are blooming and the fall when the foliage is blazing. The only thing I would like to see be changed is adding more direction signs and perhaps installing interpretive signs (such as telling about the logging and paper making heritage, the flora and fauna and the history of Millinocket) on the trail.

Four Seasons Adventure Trail

Not for cyclists. Terrible trail conditions

October, 2017 by htaatjes

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!!

Ellsworth Rail Trail

Good fitness trail

August, 2017 by hamorlt

This is a paved trail for both bike and walk that follows the railway thru a part of the town of Ellsworth. Very flat, this is easily traversed and works well for those looking for a good trail for morning walks, runs or rides. Pet friendly but please clean up after your pet.

Down East Sunrise Trail

ATV trail during spring/summer/fall, first and foremost

May, 2017 by dlmjlm11

We were excited to accept the challenge of the 85 mile rail-trail. We bicycled from Ellsworth to Columbia Falls in 8-10 mile chunks parking at different entry points along the way, making a 16-20 mile ride round trip each time. Every time we rode we encountered an abundance of ATVer's who dusted us out each time we passed each other, and since they were approaching us at rather high speeds, we stopped and got off of the trail each time. We did the majority of our rides mid-week hoping to avoid a lot of ATV traffic but also tried riding on the weekends, same story. The scenery in many of the areas was very nice but on our final ride there was deep, loose gravel and we sadly abandoned the challenge to ride the entire trail. From research after we threw in the towel, it appears that the ATV folk have financed a large part of this trail and are enjoying it thoroughly. In my opinion, I don't think that the ATV/Bicycle mix is a good fit.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Sled trail

March, 2017 by pellepelle1209

The sunrise trail is great. It would be a lot better if the groomer didn't wait 2 or 3 days after it snowed. Considering we only get to ride locally a few times a winter. My thought is more people would donate or join clubs if trails where groomed more than once a week. That's just my 2 cents. The scenics are like no other.

Belfast Rail Trail on the Passagassawaukeag

five stars is right!

October, 2016 by mike hurley

a wonderful thing about this trail is that it is handicapped accessible from the outer High Street parking lot in particular. The stone dust surface is impervious to wheels and motor driven and otherwise propelled wheel chairs are very easy to use on the trail.

That said... the trail is a wonder. There are three parking area access points. 1. downtown/intown where it intersects the Armistice Bridge walking bridge and Harbor Walk, 2. Upper Bridge (on High Street) and 3. out at the The Brooks Preservation railroad yard, station, and museum.

It is a remarkable 2.2 miles of natural world.
