QUICK TRAIL FACTS

- Trail Mileage: ~.6 miles one way
- Pets: yes
- Difficulty: easy
- Sights: Penobscot River, Bangor
The two riverside walks of Bangor and Brewer lie opposite one another, across the Penobscot River. If you’re ambitious, you can combine them for a longish river walk! Brewer’s walk is about .6 mile, from Hardy Street to Penobscot Street. (Although, I may have turned in early and the true end is Veterans Park? Local sources say the path is 1 mile, but I’m not sure how that length is being calculated.) The path is paved and quite pretty, especially at sunset.
Directions: You can park off of Penobscot Street, at one end of the trail. I’m not sure if it’s kosher to park at the Mason Brewery, on Hardy Street, where the other end of the trail starts. But it’s kosher if you stop in for an après-walk pint or snack!
