Do you like to get outdoors to walk, bicycle, run or in-line skate?

2014 started off a bit messy with ice and fallen trees, but the trail is back thanks to works crews and volunteers.  Are you looking for a way to get or stay fit, meet your neighbors on a walk, reduce use of motorized vehicles, and support local businesses?

Then join us on the trail!

The 6.5 mile Kennebec River Rail Trail welcomes locals and visitors alike for walking, running, cycling, skateboarding, rollerblading, and dog walking. The trail parallels the existing rail bed along the Kennebec River, and stretches from Augusta Maine’s Waterfront Park, through the towns of Hallowell and Farmingdale, to its conclusion in the city of Gardiner, Maine.

The Friends of the Kennebec River Rail Trail was formed as a non-profit in 1996 to assist in the construction, maintenance and promotion of the 6.5 mile long rail trail from Augusta to Gardiner Maine. As a non-profit, the Friends of the Kennebec River Rail Trail relies on its members for financial support and volunteering to assist in the maintenance of the trail as well as financial contributions from business and foundations.

We welcome your support, both financial gifts and donations of time for doing volunteer work on the trail. For more information, please contact us at:
