Ellsworth Rail Trail Description

The Ellsworth Rail-Trail runs just over 1 mile between North Street (SR 179) north of town to Birch Avenue in Ellworth. Alongside the path runs an active line on which Downeast Scenic Railways offers tours.

Plans call for the trail to be extended to connect with the Down East Sunrise Trail, which is less than a mile away and extends 87 miles northeast to Pennamaquan Lake.

Ellsworth Rail Trail Reviews

This is a paved trail for both bike and walk that follows the railway thru a part of the town of Ellsworth. Very flat, this is easily traversed and works well for those looking for a good trail for morning walks, runs or rides. Pet friendly but please clean up after your pet.
