Androscoggin River Trail and Papermill Trail, Lisbon and Lisbon Falls


  • Preserve Size: NA
  • Trail Mileage: ~3.5 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: river views, paved path

This is a paved, wheelchair accessible trail along the Androscoggin and Sabattus Rivers. It’s flat and pretty, and popular with walkers, joggers, and bikers. The paper mill section has a few signs explaining the history of the area.

From the Lisbon Falls trailhead at the end of Davis Street to Miller Park, the distance is about 1.7 miles. From Miller Park to Lisbon Community School, it’s about 0.8 miles, and the most northern leg between the school and the bridge over Barker Brook is about 1 mile.

I also have included on my Google map a little loop around the riverfront park in Lisbon Falls, at the southern end of the trail, as you can also start your walk here and walk along Davis Street to pick up the path.

Directions: You can pick up this trail at several trailheads. One is at Miller Park, at the junction of Rt. 196 and Frost Hill Avenue in Lisbon. You can also park at the end of Davis Street/Blethen Street, at Lisbon Community School, or off Capital Ave, near Enterprise Electric. There’s what looks to be an informal dirt parking area off Upland Road, as well.
