There are four parking options for this segment of the trail: Option 1: Park at the Westbrook Community Center on Bridge Street. Follow Sebago to the Sea Trail signs along residential streets to the off-road trail located off Puritan Drive. Continue on this mile-long wooded trail to Route 302. Option 2: Park at the East Bridge Ball Field. Walk downhill towards the river to the trail. Walk .3 miles north (left) on the Sebago to the Sea Trail to Route 302. Option 3: Park at the East Bridge Parking Lot, located 0.1 miles south of Route 302. Option 4: Park at Waste Management at 2000 Forest Avenue (Route 302) and follow signs for the Sebago to the Sea Trail

Good trail for all types. Easy enough to bring kids or run/bike on. Couldn’t find the rest of the trail about two miles in. Don’t think it’s super well maintained. Saw some litter and two sites with tents on them. Clear in the first half, then in the afternoon traffic increased. Still, it was beautiful.

Great heavily wooded trail. A bit muddy, which is understandable given the season.

I did the off-road portion of this section which was fairly easy to follow even though there are some places that are very overgrown. Plenty of poison ivy along the trail when traveling along the river. For mountain bikers, this is a single track trail.
