Eastern Trail Maps

Eastern Trail Map OverviewThe Eastern Trail is a scenic 65 +- mile signed bike route that starts at the Piscataqua River in Kittery (at the New Hampshire border) and ends in South Portland, Maine. It is part of U.S. Bike Route One – go here for a map of the full USBR1 in Maine.

Along this route you will find many treasures: historical landmarks, breathtaking vistas, recreation spots, and great places to eat. Our routes and maps are marked and geo-tagged with various points of interest—allowing users to better plan their bicycle rides and cycling trips.

Today, the Eastern Trail has a growing span of off-road sections. Eighty-five percent (85%) of the trail between Arundel and South Portland is on off-road sections.  Off-road sections are not paved – this is a multi-use trail for the use and enjoyment of walkers, cyclists, equestrians, birders and many others.

While these off road segments are being built and connected, a separate on-road bicycle route has been established.

Our best map is our Eastern Trail Guide, which includes both completed off-road sections and also the on-road trail. The current version of this comprehensive 25-page booklet outlines each segment of our extensive on- and off-road trail network. You can download a copy to view and even print, or you can order a nice color printed and bound booklet (details below). Thanks so much to Biddeford Savings Bank for their financial support to get the latest version of this Trail Guide Update printed.
