Long, flat trail through Scarborough Marsh. Nice place to picnic and walk the dogs.

Great walk, lots of birds in the Marshes.

Very nice, flat gravel walk. Very busy with lots of bike and foot traffic on this beautiful August Saturday.

Great trail, very flat, great for running, biking, or walking the dog.

Loved the views of the marsh

Packed gravel, may as well be paved. Amazingly flat, any bike, any rider age can ride this. Only a handful of road crossings. The marsh crossing is very scenic. Very quiet and peaceful. Mostly shady.

Great option for a long flat walk. Excellent views.

Paved trail running through Scarborough Marsh. This is one of my favorites. Beware of Green Heads though!

Photos will be coming after this week. What a beautiful place for trails and hiking, etc. There's plenty to share with others and their experiences in these parts of Maine. S. B.

One of my favorites to run. not challenging but you can get great distance! I'd you are parking in the Scarborough Marsh and cross the road, you can get just under ten miles if you go all the way to 195 ramp. it's a solid eight if you run to the foot bridge. if you cruise over the marsh you can squeeze in five miles by running to the end of the access road and back. I wish the would finish the rest of the trail connecting to Portland in that direction!

My wife and I walk it all the time. It is awesome

Disappointed. We brought street bikes thinking the route was paved. Our bad for not doing enough homework. Great for trail bikes or mountain bike - even perhaps beach or hybrids. Definitely not safe for pure street or racing bikes. We'll come better equipped next time. Think we'll run it tomorrow.

Well maintained. Walked on a weekend and not overly busy. Multiuser trail and room for all

I found to be a great trail, a nice flat trail. Plenty of shady for those hot summer days. Very scenic and plenty of birds while crossing the marsh.

Best part of the trail is crossing the Scarborough marsh, your in the middle of the marsh no road no traffic very peaceful.
