Welcome to The Eastern Trail in Southern Maine
Southern Maine's Multi-Use Greenway


The Eastern Trail is a 65-mile section of the East Coast Greenway, a transportation-recreation greenway connecting Kittery, in southernmost Maine, to Casco Bay in South Portland!

The Eastern Trail is both a trail and a vision. The Eastern Trail has a growing span of off-road sections, as well as a scenic on-road route that mostly follows quiet country roads. Experienced bike riders and hikers can enjoy a beautiful journey from South Portland's Bug Light Park on Casco Bay (near Portland) to Kittery's Piscataqua River.

Is this the year for Eastern Trail link?

By Michael Kelley Staff Writer

With Army Corps of Engineers and Maine Department of Environmental Protection approval in hand, it’s a “critical year” for a long-term project to connect the Eastern Trail between the Nonesuch River in Scarborough and the Wainwright Farm Recreation Complex in South Portland.

So says Scarborough Town Planner Dan Bacon.


Winter Activities on the Eastern Trail

With snow now covering the trail, and possibly more to come, we offer some thoughts about winter activities on the ET:

    We've been contacted by several trail users who ask snowshoers, walkers, and winter cyclists to avoid the ski trail that skiers work very hard to develop and maintain along one side of the trail.
