Ellsworth Trail Description

The Ellsworth 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 Trail Reviews

Perfect walking trail, short, but very pleasant

Plenty of places to park at either end of this out and back trail. No ATVs allowed, obviously. Just a bit short of three miles, roundtrip. Very easy walk, only downside is that it's very much on the short side, less that 1.5 miles each way, out and back. No facilities along the trail, though there are plenty of opportunities to walk a few dozen yards to visit local businesses and eateries. Dog friendly, on leash please, and a dog waste disposal can is about halfway along the trail. Would that all walking trails made that accommodation!

Good fitness trail

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.
