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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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👍
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.
The trail is beautifully groomed and hugs the Passagassawakeag river for over 2 miles. We started at the north end (13 Oak Hill Road) of the trail by the rail yard. The parking lot was packed when we got there as the excursion train was getting ready to leave. They have rides Saturdays and Sundays at 1 PM. The trains travel north from the parking lot and the trail goes south. The trail surface is perfect for walking and biking. It is treelined and has many small bridges that carry you over creeks. It took us 45 minutes of walking to get to the southern end at the intersection of Pierce St. and Front St. in Belfast. There is now a trailhead with a small parking lot at the southern end (not listed in the description). The trail connects there to the Belfast Harbor Walk which is an awesome urban trail through Belfast harbor and Front Street shipyard with a long pedestrian bridge across the Passagassawakeag.
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!
