Due to several engineering and logistical issues the construction of the new Augusta end of the trail will not begin until next spring.  This is the final phase where the trail will be continued from its current end/start in the MSHA parking lot under the Memorial bridge, down the bank to connect with Augusta’s westside Waterfront Park.

This is an exciting project, but also in a tricky location, so the planned construction for this fall will have to be postponed until spring 2018.

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:
