Trail Alert!

Please be advised Greater Augusta Utility District will be moving equipment across the Rail Trail in the vicinity of the Wastewater Treatment Plant on Monday July 24th. Expect minor delays as we stop foot/bike traffic to allow for safe passage of the equipment. These crossing will occur around 8am and 3pm, but work could require additional crossing in between those times. Delays will be less than 10 minutes at a time. The red line on the attached image illustrates the area of the trail crossing. Any questions can be directed to Tim Wade at 622-3701.

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:
