"The Kennebec River Rail Trail follows the Kennebec River from trail start to finish. Once very polluted, it is now healthy, beautiful, and a fisherman's delight. The Kennebec River Rail Trail is at points scenic, but its primary purpose is to ignite a green economy and give its citizens (kids especially) a reason to exercise. The trail itself starts at the underbelly of the giant green Memorial Bridge in Augusta, capital city of the Vacation State. it then stretches all the way to the Hannaford's supermarket in Gardiner before passing riverside through the towns of Hallowell and Farmingdale. You can ride the 1.5 mile oldest part of the bike trail from Memorial Bridge in Augusta to the waterfront park in neighboring Hallowell." Read more
