The Beth Condon Memorial Pathway is located in the heart of Yarmouth, Maine. The path is named in honor of a high school student who was struck by a drunk driver while walking along US-1. The paved walking and biking path connects to businesses, schools and Royal River and park. The trail stretches about a mile from Portland Street to just east of the Hannaford shopping center.
From Portland Street, it parallels Route 1 though it is set back from the road. The trail passes a variety of businesses and then peels away from the highway beginning at the Beth Condon Memorial Butterfly Garden, which features interpretive signage about the species of butterfly that cane be found there. Crossing the Town Hall parking lot to Cleaver Street, the route curves along School Street then weaves between the baseball diamond and the tennis courts to a hemlock grove at the mouth of a bridge on the Royal River. It intersects with another riverside path which travels the length of Royal River Park. Facing upstream on the bridge, you have a view of the Third Falls on the river. Beyond that, the trail rejoins US-1, until its endpoint east of the Hannaford shopping center.
Beth Crondon Memorial Pathway is part of the East Coast Greenway, a series of bike-ped pathways linking Maine to Florida.
You can park at William H. Rowe School (52 School St, Yarmouth, ME 04096); the Hannaford shopping center at 756 US-441, Yarmouth, as well the numerous businesses along US Route 1.
