Franklin Pasture Trail
Parking for the trail is off Birch Street in Lewiston. Look for a driveway leading to athletic fields at the top of the hill where Birch Street bends. Alternatively, there is also street parking and access from Bartlett Street and at the intersection of Marcotte Avenue and Caron Street.
When school is not in session, there is also access and parking at Lewiston High School off East Avenue.
The Franklin Pasture Trail provides an excellent surface for rollerblading, skateboarding, biking, walking, and jogging close to downtown Lewiston. This trail begins in Marcotte Park behind the Colisee, winds behind the high school, continues to Longley Elementary School and then goes down through a field and ends on Bartlett Street.
