This is a paved, easy, and delightful 2-mile trail (one way) with some really gorgeous sections. I recommend, if you can, following two unmarked side trails that are not paved. The first on your right from the parking lot off Treatment Plant Road takes you to a bluff with breathtaking views. The second one, a little farther on to your right, leads through a little woods to a secluded cove with a reddish-purplish beach. The paved section of the walk ends at Route 1, but a snowmobile track continues on the other side of the street. I wonder if that snowmobile path eventually hooks up to the Downeast Sunrise Trail? Looks like it from Google maps.
Directions: From the intersection of Route 1 and Route 190 in Perry, follow Route 190 for 1.4 miles before turning left onto Indian Road. In another .4 miles turn left onto Side Road. Follow Side Road as it bears left, and where Side Road ends at its intersection with Bayview and Treatment Plant Roads, take Treatment Plant Road on the left. Follow the road to the end, a parking lot for the trailhead.
