Kennebec Valley Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Tucked along the edge of the wide Kennebec River, the Solon to Bingham Trail offers a pleasant diversion from I-95. In recent years the Kennebec Valley Rails organization has been working to promote the corridor between Solon and Bingham as a multiuse trail. The group’s ultimate goal is to create a continuous water-and-land-based trail from Belgrade (just north of Augusta) to the Canadian border. The Kennebec Valley Trail is the cornerstone of that effort.
As you begin the trail, the wide Kennebec River captivates you—and the smooth surface of the path allows you to focus your attention on the river. The trail carves along the edge of the river for the first 2.0 miles. Mountain bluffs rise along the river’s western edge, while a mix of hardwoods and softwoods—aspen, birch, oak, maple, and pine—line the right side of the trail."
