The Rotary Centennial Trail crosses two towns—Benton and Winslow—in central Maine, about 50 miles southwest of Bangor. The scenic wooded trail follows a former rail bed along the eastern shore of the Kennebec River. At its southern end, a rail bridge abutment offers beautiful views of the river.
In the future, trail-goers will be able to continue farther south along the proposed East Kennebec Trail, which will head into downtown Winslow.
Supported by the Waterville Rotary Club, the trail was completed in 2005 and named for the centennial anniversary of Rotary International. Although the trail is short, it’s part of the larger Kennebec Messalonskee Trails system, as well as the East Coast Greenway, a developing trail network stretching from Maine to Florida.
Parking is available at the north end of the trail, just west of Benton Avenue, 300 yards south of ME Route 139/100/11. From Benton Avenue, turn west on the driveway through Asher Farms mobile home park to reach the trailhead kiosk and parking area.
