Eastern Promenade Trail

For rollerblades, not good

June, 2024 by kdcspamspam

It is paved but it’s still very bumpy. Not ideal for rollerblades

Mountain Division Trail

Good but hilly

June, 2024 by kdcspamspam

We rollerbladed down this path, starting at the Maine State Visitor information center. It was smooth but very hilly. Also we tried to start in Standish but it was not paved.

Papermill Trail

Beautiful scenery and easy walk.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Suitable Only For ATV's

June, 2024 by stevenatha53

I've never been more disappointed in a rail trail than the portion of the Down East Sunrise Trail we rode in Machias. It may be maintained, but it's maintained only for ATV's not for cyclist except mountain bikers and even then the large gravel present would make for a miserable ride. Just don't.

Whistle Stop Rail-Trail

out and back from Farmington

May, 2024 by terriehoops

First time on this trail and we loved it! We were on gravel grinder bikes, and the trail was perfect for this type of bike. We found the trails were in great condition. We did an out and back turn around at 6 miles. We will definitely return possibly for increased distance and more exploration on trails around Titcomb ski area.

Eastern Trail

Kennebunk to Biddeford

April, 2024 by hammer757

Nice section starting from the Kennebunk elementary school parking lot. The trail switches to road riding in Biddeford turn left when the trail ends and you’ll see a Dunkin Donuts. Can you say coffee and pee

Bucksport Waterfront Walkway

Acadia National Park Carriage Roads

A Superb Gravel-grinding Adventure

April, 2024 by luv2bike23

The carriage roads of Acadia National Park are among the most beautiful and rewarding places I've ridden. They are unique and unlike a typical rail-trail, but if they were, they would undoubtedly be in the Hall of Fame. The riding on the carriage roads is comparable to the Virginia Creeper Trail, with some climbing and numerous great views, but the carriage roads are generally wider and more engineered. They offer a fantastic range of scenery, including dense forests, lakes, stream crossings over historic stone bridges and spectacular views of the coastal mountains, bays, ocean and inland Maine. With forty-five miles open to bicycles, one can plan a variety of rides from relatively flat and easy circuits around the lakes and ponds to more extended climbing in the mountains. The grade is typically gentle and the National Park Service does a wonderful job of keeping the carriage roads groomed and free of obstacles. Being the only national park in the region, Acadia can be very crowded during the summer and the carriage roads are often congested. Cyclists need to be very careful around horses in particular. The more challenging and remote sections of the carriage roads are typically less crowded, so those are better choices during the summer. Late October to early November is the best time for cycling as the crowds, heat and humidity give way to crisp cool days without insect pests. The carriage roads can easily be ridden with almost any kind of bike except road bikes, but most riders would probably do best with a dedicated gravel bike, fat bike, hybrid or hardtail mountain bike. E-bikes are a common sight and can be rented in Bar Harbor. Suspension is mostly unnecessary but good tires are a must. Surface conditions can range from hardpack to fairly deep gravel, so wider tires with some teeth are helpful. Good brakes are also highly recommended. The carriage roads provide a fantastic cycling experience but they do require hundreds of hours of upkeep so please be sure to purchase a park pass. As a capstone to a stupendous carriage road adventure, Bar Harbor has plenty of restaurants where one can enjoy a traditional Maine post-ride pigout of chowdah, lobstah and beeah. Enjoy!

Down East Sunrise Trail

Unfortunately not for biking, which is most ecologically sound, preserves the peaceful atmosphere, and provides healthy exercise

February, 2024 by debra.nygaard

Trail was ruined by loose stones, ruts, etc. cause primarily by ATV's and generally not rideable, even for wide tires used by a very experienced rider. Other reviews say the same thing. I don't understand why the powers that be allow ATV's on this "trail." Certainly there is support for a more sensible and appropriate use of the trail as well as lots of other places in Maine where you can ride your ATV. With all the need these days for clean air, energy conservation, healthy exercise for our population, preserving animal habitats, etc., why in the world would this continue to be supported along the entire trail no less!

Kennebec Valley Trail

This is not a bike trail, this is a atv trail, the people drive the side by sides like they are out of cigarettes on the trails up here.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Ski the DEST!

December, 2023 by icepilot139

I skied the entire trail over 6 days eastbound in February 2020. There were a few snow machines but they were never a problem. All were courteous and plenty of room to share the trail. Camping was fun and greatly aided by the picnic tables placed trailside. Very enjoyable trip!

Eastern Promenade Trail

Eastern Promenade Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

At only 2.1 miles, Eastern Promenade Trail packs a great deal of interest into its short length.

Starting near the Highway 295 bridge you'll be blessed with sensational views of the bay. Next, as you make your way past Fish Point, you'll be rewarded with the sight of massive cruise ships, vintage narrow gauge trains, and historic buildings.

What brought the greatest pleasure to me on this October Sunday morning bike ride were the throngs of people walking their dogs! It was like being at the National Dog Show! I had to stop at East End Beach which is essentially a dog park to watch the dogs happily play and cavort. This trail was most heavily populated with the dog walkers, joggers, and other pedestrians. We bicyclists were few and far between.

Be sure to combine this with the Back Cove Trail loop for nearly 8 miles of riding and get more bang for your buck!

(But do not bother combining it with another connecting trail - the Bayside Trail, which doesn't go along a bay and is about as appealing as riding down an alley)
