Description

The Belfast Rail Trail is a stunning 2.3 mile point-to-point trail which starts at the waterfront of Belfast, Maine near the pedestrian bridge and features the Passagassawakeag river. Easy to access with three parkings along the trail, good for all skill levels (mostly flat) with various benches and picnic tables all along. Lots of trees (shaded areas), great for dog walking (on leash). Mostly used by pedestrians and bicyclists.

The Belfast Rail Trail also known as the " Passy Rail Trail ") was built on the former rail bed of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. It is open and has three entry points at Upper Bridge, City Point or Armistice Bridge in downtown Belfast.

The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
