The biggest news about the Eastern Trail are the Trail Development campaigns that are under way. You can read about them here.

- A second campaign is Blazing the Trail South: Kennebunk to South Berwick. When complete, Blazing the Trail South will add 19 miles and extend a current 6.2 mile off road section of the Eastern Trail. Learn more here.
- We are nearing the construction phase of our Close the Gap campaign. A key piece of trail is missing in Scarborough. A 1.6-mile “gap” interrupts off-road travel between South Portland and Saco. More information here.
