Sanford-Springvale Rail Trail

Not a good trail for runners

July, 2020 by equinox43

I will preface this by saying I'm basing my opinion on being a runner. It is probably a great trail for dirt bike riders, ATV riders, snowmobilers, etc. For runners the surface is soft in places, pitted in places, has lots of rocks in places, and overall is just not a great surface for runners.

Aroostook Valley Trail

Trail is very rocky. This trail is primarily used for ATV riders.

Sanford-Springvale Rail Trail

Mostly an ATV trail

June, 2020 by john.petersson

Got on the trail by the little river, but found the trail was only one mile in one direction and 1/3 mile in the other. Surface was too much loose sand and gravel for running and biking. Probably a fun trail for ATVs or dirt bikes, but avoid for running or biking.

Saint John Valley Heritage Trail

A wonderful trail!

June, 2020 by ldstuart56

We rode this trail June 5, 2020, from Fort Kent to St. Francis. We found the trail to be in excellent shape (hard packed crushed stone) and well maintained. Given its great condition, we did not find riding our e-bikes on this trail to be a challenge. There are some beautiful views of the St. John River about half way into the trail. Ours was an early morning ride, allowing for a glimpse of various wildlife along the way - a family of raccoons, a Green Heron, Bald Eagles, Pileated Woodpeckers, and other birds. Aside from seeing two ATV's, we had the entire trail to ourselves. We plan to ride it again this fall.

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.

Kennebec River Rail Trail

Fun but easy

September, 2019 by christine13

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.

Eastern Trail

Between Saco & Bug Light Park is best

September, 2019 by christine13

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.

Back Cove Trail

Level, popular trail

September, 2019 by jkhiser

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.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Great ATV riding

September, 2019 by eastbrook

Great ATV riding trail lots of scenery, nice small streams fish and mountains admire.
Saw two horses on the way to Ellsworth people riding were very nice we let them pass as we did not want to upset the horses. Great experence all in all. No complaints here! Life is too short get out and enjoy and avoid the miserable people! Thank you Maine for providing this great trail !!!!

Back Cove Trail

Back Cove

August, 2019 by allymackenzie10

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.

Calais Waterfront Walkway

Had a nice ride along this trail. It is the beginning of the East Coast Greenway Maine to Florida. it was well maintained, logs were mode and lots of granite benches along the way.

Lagrange to Medford Trail

Lagrange to Medford trail

August, 2019 by mchughe

This trail was soft and sandy, with many puddles (it rained the night before) and the mosquitoes were vicious as we were unloading our bikes. We rode only a short way before realizing it was too sandy to ride comfortably, and we decided to leave - a big disappointment! The trail seems to be dominated by ATVs - we saw four or five in the short time we were there. All in all, this doesn’t seem to be a good trail for biking!
