You’ll Love These Scenic And Laid Back Rail Trails In Maine

The state of Maine makes it easy to bring you the best outdoor recreation activities. We love writing about things like hiking trails and outdoor must-dos because we just have so many options here! But, sometimes it’s nice to be outside without really doing much. A nice walk or a simple stroll can make for a lovely, laid back Maine day. And, now that the air is getting cooler and the leaves will soon begin to change, just being outside is activity enough.

Today, we’re giving you some of the best options in Maine for exploring rail trails. The state’s multi-use trails provide 310 miles of exploring through forests, farms and fields. The trails can be used for mountain biking, hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and more.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
