Description

This pleasant trail is the perfect place to stretch your legs or have a picnic, all while enjoying fantastic views of the Narraguagus River, and the fishing vessels moored across the way.

The paved trail is about 4 feet wide. There is a smooth transition from the parking lot to the trail. Almost immediately it descends at a moderately steep grade the first 10 feet or so, and then continues to descend more gradually, curving through maple trees, until it reaches the shore. The first bench is located here, and the trail turns sharply left to follow the shoreline.

There are views of the river, and little gradient change, from this point until the end of the trail. The trail soon crosses a bridge, slightly narrower than the trail and with railings on either side, over a small stream running into the river. There are two additional benches located along the trail before it reaches its end at US-1.

There is a significant frost heave in the pavement near this end of the trail; and a 6-8 inch curb between the trail and the roadway. There is no good way to loop back to the trailhead on the road, it is recommended to turn around and return by the same trail for an out-and-back walk totaling a quarter-mile .

At the US-1A end of the trail there is a covered picnic pavilion with nice views over the water, a delightful spot for a picnic.

Other Information

The Town of Milbridge was able to pave this trail, build the bridge, and add the gazebo thanks to assistance from Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.
