Brunswick, Maine is home to the Androscoggin River Bicycle Trail, a multipurpose recreational trail nestled between the river and US Route 1. The trail stretches 2.6 miles from end-to-end. The trail starts at the end of Water Street, at the parking for the nearby dog park. The boat landing on this end provides a glimpse of the river, spanned by a railroad bridge. The trail itself starts a few steps away and features two lanes, one for pedestrians and one for cyclists. You'll pass a soccer field and under SR 196. That brings you to Merrymeeting Dog Park, a large canine play area. Stone benches dot the riverside as the trail winds along the river's south bank. For most of its length it parallels busy Route 1, but despite the noise you will no doubt feel compelled to pause and take in views of the Androscoggin River. The trail terminates on Grover Lane.
The Androscoggin River Bicycle Trail is part of the East Coast Greenway, a series of trails stretching from Maine to Florida.
There is plenty of parking at both ends of the trail. On the west side, there's parking for the dog park at the end on Water Street. There is also a boat landing at that end. On the east end is a large parking area at approximately 99 Grover Lane, Brunswick.
This is the second time I go bike riding in 20yrs and this path was so nice n easy. I found there to be a couple slight slight inclines but, not bad at all considering how out of shape and how long it’s been since I’ve gone bike riding. Beautiful little views. Beautiful little picnic areas. I saw all ages on the path from like 3yrs to 80s either bike riding, scootering, walking, or jogging. Definitely a nice little place to go.
This was a cute little path to ride. I’m just getting back into bike riding after like 20yrs (seriously) and this path was awesome to ride. Today was only my second time taking my bike out. There were a couple slight inclines that weren’t bad at all. I did have to take a break or two before continuing on them but that’s only because it’s been so many years for me. I even saw little kids riding their bikes (3-5yrs) and elderly folks as well! Amazing little path. ¿¿
