These town trails wind around the recreational fields next to the Androscoggin River. Access to the river itself is a bit tough and the banks are muddy. Otherwise, just enjoy your stroll along the river’s edge until the trail ends at a creek and you turn back the way you came. The trail spur that goes to the TnT Bible Church crosses an area with a lot of beaver activity, so it can be very wet and difficult to cross.
If you continue across the street behind the recreational fields, you first have to ascend a steep bank. Then the trails wind around between the neighborhoods and are popular with dog walkers.
Directions: To access the trails, take a right at the lights onto Rt. 24/ Elm Street. Follow for a half mile, and take a right on Foreside Road. Half-mile down, you’ll see the recreational fields. Parking is available in lots on either side of the street. Dog bags are available.
