Bucksport Waterfront Walkway

The tranquil and gentle path along the Penobscot River is a great place for a stroll or to soak in the sites of Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrow Bridge. 
Trail Activity
0.6 miles, One Way


Bucksport's Waterfront Walkway is a popular attraction for visitors and locals alike. With public restrooms conveniently located at each end of the walkway, and gazebos & water fountains that offer space to reflect, the Waterfront Walkway encourages families to spend quality time together in downtown Bucksport. The walkway is paved with bricks.

Across the Penobscot River from the walkway are both the scenic Penobscot Narrows Bridge and the historic Fort Knox. Many historic plaques are located along the walkway in addition to lovely plants and flowers, in season.
