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


 

The Eastern Trail is both a trail and a vision. The Eastern Trail has 22 off-road miles from Bug Light (in South Portland) to Kennebunk, 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.

The vision to create the Eastern Trail started in the early 1990's, led by John Andrews and several others. More on that early history here.

Today, to complete this vision, we are aggressively developing plans and funds to both close a critical 1.6-mile gap between South Portland and Scarborough and then add 19 miles between Kennebunk and South Berwick.

Your support will help us get there.

Be an active part of our effort to build, enjoy, and sustain this wonderful resource.
