The Eastern Trail (ET) is a 30% complete version of a 65-mile recreation/transportation greenway connecting Casco Bay at Bug Light in South Portland with Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This world-class, 10-foot wide trail is enjoyed by thousands of users for hiking, showshoeing, crosscountry skiing, walking, biking, birding, nature study and many other muscle-powered healthy activities.


The ET offers views of pristine Casco Bay at its northern end. It crosses cities and Maine's largest saltwater marsh. It passes over the Maine Turnpike as a part of a 6.2-mile greenway section connecting Biddeford, Arundel and Kennebunk. It's near Maine's sandy saltwater beaches. It passes through miles of quiet woodland with streams and wetlands. ET explorers may see great blue heron, snowy egrets, bald eagles, seals, wild turkey, deer, turtles, and other Maine wildlife, and historic mills and railroad artifacts.
