Eastern Trail Maps

Eastern Trail Map OverviewThe Eastern Trail Route in Southern Maine

The Eastern Trail (ET) is a scenic 65 +- mile signed bike route that starts at the Piscataqua River in Kittery and ends in South Portland, Maine. Along this route you will find many treasures: historical landmarks, breathtaking vistas, recreation spots, and great places to eat. Our routes and maps are marked and geo-tagged with various points of interest—allowing users to better plan their bicycle rides and cycling trips.

Today, the Eastern Trail has a growing span of off-road sections. Eighty-five percent (85%) of the trail between Arundel and South Portland is on off-road sections.

While these off road segments are being built and connected, a separate on-road bicycle route has been established.

Our best map is our Eastern Trail Guide, which includes both completed off-road sections and also the on-road trail. The current version of this comprehensive 28-page booklet outlines each segment of our extensive on- and off-road trail network. You can download a copy to view and even print, or you can order a nice color printed and bound booklet (details below).

A revised version of the Trail Guide will be available early in 2014. Changes in that version will include two very important updates - the opening of Memorial Bridge (NH/Maine border) and the change in Amtrak bike policy. Access to trains with a bike is no longer available in Wells - Check with Amtrak for current locations and restrictions.
