From ME Route 4, head west on Lake Shore Drive for 2.7 miles. Turn left onto North Auburn Road and in 0.2 Miles turn left onto Whitman Spring Road. Parking is available just in front of the gate that marks the beginning of the trail.
The Spring Road Trail follows the edge of Lake Auburn on a wide gravel road that is gated at each end. Numerous viewpoints are available on the edge of the road, showcasing sweeping views of Lake Auburn.
As Lake Auburn is the sole source of drinking water for Lewiston, Auburn, and surrounding communities swimming is not allowed. Dogs are also not allowed in the water. The regulations for Lake Auburn prohibit all body contact, even your hands from touching the water. The fines are hefty, up to $2500.00 for each violation.
