Mountain Division Trail

Can’t wait for the trail to extend

December, 2022 by andrew.walton72

My family goes out to Shaw park often and get right on the trail. We can’t wait for the trail to extend past our house in Steep Falls!

Eastern Trail

nice trail

October, 2022 by nyedog27

Flat, quiet, road crossings are few over the first 8 miles and well lit/marked. No portapotties, which is unreasonable. Lovely ride thru forest and wetlands.

Belfast Rail Trail on the Passagassawaukeag

easy, pleasant walk

October, 2022 by tinsleym

Lovely, flat, well kept. I started a bit further back at the Belfast Boathouse, walked all the way out and back for almost 6 miles.

Saint John Valley Heritage Trail

Had a beautiful crisp fall ride. With just amazing fall foliage, the trail was very well maintained my wife and I had no problem making ride on our road bikes.

Mountain Division Trail

Nice calm ride on an e-bike.

September, 2022 by brian.c.ricker

It’s fairly narrow in most spots, but very quiet, and serene.

Eastern Trail

Saco north to Scarborough leg

September, 2022 by andrix

Plenty of parking at trailhead point off Clark St. in Saco. 8 miles one way to point where the on-rode portion begins in Scarborough. A few complex road crossings in first mile or so then only a few - and calmer - crossings remainder of ride. Scarborough Marsh area was worth the ride. Very even surface, light bike traffic and lots of shade.

Eastern Trail

Only Two Wheel Bikes

September, 2022 by g244dpz8y7

So I can only speak to the first 3 miles from the trail head in Kennebunk to mile 3. I ride a tadpole trike and found the obstacles at road crossings either just wide enough with caution to fit to one 3 mile in that I could not fit my trike at all. That means no trikes or wheel chair of any type and I would be very careful if you use a kid trailer. Overall it was a bad experience that did not need to be if the trailfiljs had put any real thought into it!!!

Kennebec River Rail Trail

Perfect morning walk!!

August, 2022 by bdloubier

Started at Capitol park entrance enjoying the walkers passing by. All were saying good morning! Great walk paved with asphalt. Follows the Kennebec River. A little disappointed it was by the waste treatment facility.

Saint John Valley Heritage Trail

Great day for a ride

August, 2022 by band_83

Back into biking again we found this trail a great ride. Very little motorized traffic and all those where very courteous to us on bikes. Driven by this trail many times and never knew it was there. Hard to believe that your never more than a few yards for a road, but you hardly every hear the traffic. Lots of history and great views. Take a trip to northern Maine and enjoy this trail.

Saint John Valley Heritage Trail

Great trail to bike ride on. Never more than just a few yards from Rt 161, but you almost never see it. Lot's to see, and a lot of history. Take a ride and spend an afternoon.
