A big thank you to all our Adopt the Trail Sponsors, who help keep the trail beautiful for all to use.

We are planning to keep the Kennebec River Rail Trail open so people have a place to walk and run outside.  In the interest of everyone’s health and safety please maintain a 6 foot distance from others not in your safe group.  Please respect other’s space.  Together we will get through this difficult period.  Thank you.

Just for your knowledge, most of the Kennebec River Rail Trail is 10 feet wide. So when passing others on the trail please observe the CDC 6 foot safe distance rule. This is what it looks like on the trail. Please pass to the edges. Groups may need to pass single file. Thank you.

Just because it looks paranoid, does not mean it is not right. Be safe, stay safe and enjoy the walk.

Trek Across Maine is coming back to the trail to June 2020, so dust off your bicycles.

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

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:
