About Us

The mission of the Eastern Trail Alliance is to build, maintain, and promote the use of the Eastern Trail, a recreation and transportation greenway from Casco Bay to the Piscataqua River in Kittery, Maine. We do this by inspiring individuals and private and public organizations to partner with us to support this incomparable resource.

 

We are friends of the Eastern Trail, working together in a variety of ways to develop the fantastic resource between Portsmouth, New Hampshire and South Portland, Maine. We are citizens of Southern Maine, frequent visitors, hikers, bikers, horseback riders and outdoor enthusiasts. We are family members, commuters, municipal employees, and just plain interested folk.

Click here to meet our team – the dedicated trustees and staff who work closely with members, sponsors, volunteers and so many others who share the vision of the Eastern Trail.

Listed below are some key online resources that describe who we are, what we’ve done, and what we are currently doing to build and promote the Eastern Trail:
