Trailhead

Durham River Park is located off ME Route 136 (Royalsborough Road), 0.5 miles north from where ME Routes 136/9 split and ME Route 9 continues towards Lisbon Falls. Look for the sign and entrance to the park on the right. Signs indicate where the trails leave from the parking lot.

Description

The trails at Durham River Park create a small loop down to and following the banks of the Androscoggin River. Giant Silver Maples populate the floodplains but break often enough to get great vistas of the river as it bends towards Lisbon. Although the trails are well defined and flat along the river, there are many roots to be aware of and the trails down to river are moderately steep. Two of the trails act as hand-carry portages for paddlers.

Other Information

Durham River Park is owned and managed by the Town of Durham and under conservation easement by the Androscoggin Land Trust.
