Brunswick, Maine is home to the Androscoggin River Bicycle Trail and Pedestrian Trail is a multipurpose recreational trail nestled between the river and US Route 1. The trail stretches 2.6 miles from end-to-end. The trail starts at the end of Water Street, at the parking for the nearby dog park. The boat landing on this end provides a glimpse of the river, spanned by a railroad bridge. The trail itself starts a few steps away and features two lanes, one for pedestrians and one for cyclists. You'll pass a soccer field and under SR 196. That brings you to Merrymeeting Dog Park, a large canine play area. Stone benches dot the riverside as the trail winds along the river's south bank. For most of its length it parallels busy Route 1, but despite the noise you will no doubt feel compelled to pause and take in views of the Androscoggin River. The trail terminates on Grover Lane.
