"Flat, off-road terrain through mixed forest and salt marsh makes this the perfect destination for wheels, whether you’re on bikes, in a wheelchair, or pushing a stroller. The East Coast Greenway is a developing trail that will one day wind its way from northern Maine to Key West, Florida, linking all the major cities of the eastern seaboard on safe, traffic-free paths. Parts of that trail are already established, including Maine’s Eastern Trail, which currently spans a scenic 65-mile signed bike route from the Piscataqua River in Kittery northward to Casco Bay in South Portland."
