Revised August 2020
Please be aware that hunting is permitted in Maine on many private and public lands, including lands that abut the Eastern Trail.
The discharge of firearms, bows or any other devices that launch a projectile is prohibited on the Trail, except in Scarborough Marsh where hunting is allowed according to the rules for the Scarborough Marsh Wildlife Management area managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W).
During hunting season—generally the end of August through mid-December—please take proper precaution by wearing blaze orange clothing and using a blaze orange vest on your pet. We suggest you wear a blaze orange hat as well and NOT wear white clothing, hats or bike helmets during this time.
For more specific hunting information including seasons contact IF&W by phone (207-287-8000), or visit the Hunting/Trapping section of the maine.gov/ifw website
Thank you—Eastern Trail Alliance
