The Presumpscot River Trail here is parallel to Westbrook’s Presumpscot River Trail on the other side of the river. 

I saw a beautiful fox traipsing along the river when I came here.

I found it a bit difficult to tell where the official trail ends. I kept on walking until I reached a chain link fence, passing what appeared to be a homeless person’s campsite. 

Directions: Parking is allowed at the Waste Management lot on Route 302, also called Forest Avenue. The trailhead is not far.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
