We started on the eastern end. About a mile in there is some construction with heavy machinery and a very rough trail. Other than that, the trail is in good condition. For about a mile, the views are stupendous but most of the trail is in a forest canopy. There is a beautiful pond with lots of marshland.
The BIG issue is the bugs. The horseflies are terrible. In the hour and a half we were out we each got bit a dozen times and swatted away hundreds. I'm not sure if this is all the time or seasonal, or just this section of the trail, but it'll keep us from this segment.
Next time we'll go to the mid-point and try from there.
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.
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.
We did this in two parts: Kennebunk-Biddeford, and South Portland-Saco. To do just Kennebunk to Biddeford & back is a bit too easy and dull - straight, flat, 12 miles round trip; although, you might want to reserve time to explore downtown Biddeford. Biscuits! Doughnuts! Brewery! Etc.
The Portland-Saco stretch is more varied. If you start from Bug Light Park, like we did, I think it comes out to more than 20 miles; for a shorter ride, start from the parking lot on the trail proper. There is the most excellent empanada place in Saco where you should try to have lunch. The marsh is fun with interesting birds.
Interesting to be able to see the entire loop from the starting point. Only one real incline at the overpass. We added an out and back on Eastern Promenade Trail to get 9.9 total miles.
This is a 3.6 mile loop around the bay. The trail gets a lot of use, which makes it very safe. Only one hill. Great trail for bikers, runners, or walkers.
Last July, I reported that the bridges were a pretty sketchy to go over with horses. I am so happy to report that the bridge's planks have been replaced. I've ridden several days lately and each time the gentlemen brush-hogging were so polite turning off their motors so they wouldn't spook the horses. All the bikes and hikers I have met are so sweet and friendly. I just love to ride my horses on this trail. Thank you to whomever is responsible for maintaining the P R/T!
We rode this stretch last fall. Beautiful ride. The trail is well maintained and we only saw a couple of people. My only complaint is that we had to pick a non-traditional place to park (intersection of 115/115B off the side of the road) because most of the public parking areas are not large enough or set up well enough to bring in and turn around a huge horse trailer, especially during the busy times. I would love to be able to ride from the Bowman but need to be sure that we can get turned around and not get blocked in. We may try that this summer. :)
Having ridden over 120 Rail-Trails in 16 states, I can say with confidence that this is NOT a well maintained trail. We started our ride at the parking lot just west of Gorham on the,"Smooths out" section of the trail. It was nowhere near smooth. The first bridge we crossed had broken out boards on one side and a hole in the decking. The falling leaves hid some of the large stones that dotted the two single tracks that were much of the trail. We rode beyond the high point of the trail but turned around after 10 miles. This was some of the roughest 20 miles of rail-trail that I've ridden and I've ridden over 4,000 miles this year.
Most of this trail is over packed earth, which is satisfactory, except following rain. The 4.5+ miles through Biddeford are poorly marked (download a map) and often hazardous. Scarborough marsh is beautiful and the rest of the trail is pleasant, often scenic. I rode the entire trail north one day and south the next. If I were to do it again, I would cut it into two smaller trails, and avoid Biddeford.
We biked the rail trail starting in Conway and going about halfway down and back. Next day we drove to lower parking area and biked up to where we had ended previous day then back. This trail is a gem, hopefully the trail club will be able to keep the cycling/walking/horseback section separate from ATV section. It has beautiful scenery, quiet, easy access parking areas. Get out there and see what you are missing!
This is a beautiful, well maintained trail with a variety of scenery to take in, including a wildlife refuge, Presidential Mt range, rivers, bogs, meadows and beaver dams. We started at the parking lot off of Airport Rd in Whitefield and rode 22 miles, round trip, to the Bowman parking lot and back. 3 hours with a lunch stop and numerous breaks to take in the scenery. Gravel, grass and hard dirt surfaces, all mowed. Few people and all super friendly and helpful! Our next outing will be the Bowman to Gorham section!
