Ride date 8/15/18. Pretty good ride. Great views once you get closer to Bug Light Park. A couple of busy intersections (to be expected) with cross walks and signals. Fairly well marked route. This trail is paved and wide enough for all users of the trail. Some trail maintenance is required as some bushes are overgrown and are in the trail. There is a small detour which is well marked as there is construction. There are a few bumpy spots from tree roots. We will definitely ride this trail again. There are some restaurants and stores along the route. Enjoy.

Rode it from Bug Island lighthouse to Rt 1 Scarborough (bout 10 miles),... The greenbelt itself was about 2.5 stars... too many intersections (some very busy) which breaks down your ride... It's also confusing at some points to continue in the path.... The ride gets better after about 3 miles into the path as you approach the landfill/recreation area... Uninterrupted, flat, well paved roads. The greenbelt then connects Rt 1 where shoulders are wide and rode conditions are very good... You can go for miles.... So to recap... First 3 miles or so ok, the rest awesome

Nice path, paved all the way. Takes you through neighborhoods and nice nature stretches. A bit stop and go at times with crosswalks, but traffic in South Portland seems to be very cognisant and ready to stop. Great ride.

Road from Wainwright Park to Bug Light. Very flat/easy ride, but some very busy road crossings and questionable neighborhoods. Definitely classified as city riding for the most part. One major road crossing is confusing, three separate crossings to get back on the trail, Rt 77/Broadway. Bug Light Park is nice, but wouldn't do this section again.

Cycled from Biddeford down the Eastern Trail to the end of Scarborough and found my way to the this trail. Had to use my phones GPS because it was the first time cycling, and was a lot of road riding, got a little sketchy/confusing by MillCreekPark, but finally made it to Bug Light Park!

Walked from Wainright Field (ample parking, so long as minimal sporting events are taking place!) to Broadway and back in just under an hour waiting for my son's baseball team to warm up. The trail is paved making it perfect for biking or pushing a stroller and winds through some peaceful wooded areas. Would be fantastic for birding. I plan on making the entire trip to Bug Light soon!
