The 65-mile long Eastern Trail extends from the Piscataqua River in Kittery to Bug Light in South Portland on Casco Bay and includes eight lighthouses along the way. The Eastern Trail (ET) is part of the 3,000 mile long East Coast Greenway that stretches from Key West, Florida to Calais, Maine. It is open to all kinds of recreational use, such as biking, hiking, bird watching, photography and even fishing along some spots. It consists of urban, remote, and suburban sections winding through the woods, along rivers and marshes, as well through towns and cities. However, less than three miles of the trail takes you on urban streets.
