Kennebec River Rail Trail

Overall a very nice trail

October, 2021 by potterdunn

There’s a lot to like about this trail: •easy ride and it has some hills and curves to make it interesting •scenic •easy parking •well marked •well maintained with a few bumps But there are a few negatives with the major one being the gap in Hallowell. For roughly 1/2 - 3/4 of a mile, the gap in the trail requires one to ride on busy Water St through the downtown area. It’s certainly not the worst road to ride on, but traffic can be heavy and you need to watch for car doors opening. The trail is also very narrow in spots making it difficult to pass through. But overall a nice trail that is worth a visit.

Papermill Trail

Beautiful trail! Met a fellow bicycle rider from New Jersey who helped encourage me through the rain!

Old Pond Railway Trail

Beautiful but Tough Running Trail

July, 2021 by sblanshan37

Great hiking trail, love the bridge crossing and bay views. If you’re looking for a good running trail - you may want to skip this one. You can run it - no real elevation gains and pretty straight forward there and back, but the railroad ties kick your butt. In some places they aren’t bad at all, but there are enough spots where there are handfuls of them packed close and tight making it very difficult. You can totally run it, but be ready for a the possibility of a potential fall or a rolled ankle.

Androscoggin River Bicycle Path

nice little ride

April, 2021 by irisjw28

This is the second time I go bike riding in 20yrs and this path was so nice n easy. I found there to be a couple slight slight inclines but, not bad at all considering how out of shape and how long it’s been since I’ve gone bike riding. Beautiful little views. Beautiful little picnic areas. I saw all ages on the path from like 3yrs to 80s either bike riding, scootering, walking, or jogging. Definitely a nice little place to go.

Androscoggin River Bicycle Path

Nice Bike Ride

April, 2021 by irisjw28

This was a cute little path to ride. I’m just getting back into bike riding after like 20yrs (seriously) and this path was awesome to ride. Today was only my second time taking my bike out. There were a couple slight inclines that weren’t bad at all. I did have to take a break or two before continuing on them but that’s only because it’s been so many years for me. I even saw little kids riding their bikes (3-5yrs) and elderly folks as well! Amazing little path. ¿¿

Old Pond Railway Trail

Hidden Trail That the Locals Know About

March, 2021 by jmatlock

Heard about this trail from a friend. Wanted to surprise my husband who loves anything to do with trains/railroads. Was very hard to find the Hancock parking lot at first & we passed it & drove further down the road. Across from the Hancock City Hall is a small lot that holds 5 -6 cars. The sign marking the lot is parallel to the road so hard to see. Saw several locals walking down the street to enter, some with their dogs. Trust the locals - they know where all the good places are. Young family was having a photo shoot with a pro photographer on part of the trail in soft afternoon light with fall foliage as backdrop. One can see tracks & concrete that was once a platform. Trail has lots of rail ties, so watch your step. Unlike another reviewer, I am glad they were left there & bikes not allowed as it keeps the trail quiet. Since we started our hike after 3pm after being at Schoodic earlier in the day, we only got as far as the trestle bridge. After another family left so we had the place to ourselves & enjoyed the peace & natural beauty. Plan to hike the whole trail from end to end next time. Hike this trail - beautiful nature & peaceful. One con: No restrooms.

Belfast Rail Trail on the Passagassawaukeag

Pleasant Afternoon Walk

The Belfast Rail Trail is well maintained, clean and provides nice views of the water.

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.

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.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Great ATV/UTV Trail

August, 2020 by spike8717

This is a great trail if you’re looking to take out your atv or utv. At 87 miles from start to finish I was able to complete the trail in about 7 hours with frequent stops/breaks and average 40PMH. The trail is pretty smooth with little rough terrain/hills. We did not explore any trails off the main trail but would’ve liked to find a good place to eat lunch. Some parts are good for legit mountain bikes, short walks or equestrian use. Definitely a good trail if you just wanna get out and ride.

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.
