The vision for the Casco Bay Trail is an off-road bicycle and pedestrian trail between Portland and Brunswick, Maine.
The corridor will be part of the East Coast Greenway. At its southern gateway, the Casco Bay Trail will link to the Back Cove and Eastern Promenade Trails through Portland, and continuing to the Eastern Trail from South Portland through Kennebunk and points south. At its northern gateway, it will link to the Androscoggin Bicycle and Pedestrian Path in Brunswick and Topsham, as well as the proposed Merrymeeting Trail, connecting Topsham with the Kennebec River Rail Trail in Gardiner, and on to Augusta and points north.
The Casco Bay Trail will transform the communities it passes through, providing a valuable new resource for recreation, transportation, commuting, exercise, environmental stewardship, tourism, and healthy lifestyles.
Once completed, the East Coast Greenway will likely be the most visited park in America. The Casco Bay Trail, because of its location on a major commuting corridor in the state, will be among the most heavily used Maine segments, as well as attracting visitors from around the country and world.
