Description

This rail trail is family-friendly and flat, with a number of benches at which to stop along the way. The 10-foot wide paved surface is suitable for the young, old, and explorers of all abilities, including those pushing strollers or using wheelchairs.

Starting from the eastern trailhead on Portland Road (ME-113) heading west, the paved trail is wooded and lined with wildflowers. There are occasional mountain views through breaks in the vegetation. The trail follows alongside ME-133 for approximately 2.5 miles before it passes south of the historic town center, around the Porter Road parking area. There are options here to find local businesses or restaurants within a short distance.

From the town center, the trail travels an additional 1.5 miles west to the trailhead at the Visitor Center near the New Hampshire state line. There is ample parking at the Visitor Center at this end of the route. 

Snowmobiles use the trail in the winter, so be aware when skiing or snowshoeing. 

Other Information

This 4 mile Fryeburg segment of trail is the northern section of the Mountain Division Trail, which has multiple established sections in Windham, Standish and Portland, known as the Sebego to Sea Trail. The Fryeburg segment is about 30 miles away from those sections of the trail, with the proposed route in between as yet unfinished. This segment of the Mountain Division Trail was constructed by Maine DOT in partnership with the Mountain Division Alliance and the Town of Fryeburg.
