the trail is well marked and easy until you hit the train station. then you have to go through town. trail turns into two other trails.

After trying 3 different spots to try and find a trailhead (got directions off My Maps app), we parked at Downeast Energy and walked as far as the path allowed until it got too wet. Buggy, and river was very gross. Trail wasn't marked at all, and there was a couple little trails off main trail that lead to no where. Not worth your time!

Start with the northernmost trailhead, as it seems to be the easiest to find and presents the most scenic parts. There are little diversions that will give you tranquil spots to watch the Cocheco River. This being a city trail, the tree coverage won’t entirely insulate you from urban bustle, but it’s a pleasant escape nonetheless. It’s moderate in length, but in elevation and trail quality my trek was quite easy.

Definitely not a road bike trail, or even a hybrid trail once you get on the end toward Watson. A decent challenge for the mountain bike though. Overgrown in some areas and a tree was down in another, so we turned around and came back sooner as we could not pass.

Nice trail with an awesome landscape.

Pleasant walk, with a mix of paved and dirt trail. The first part of the trail, starting south, is not well maintained and has little traffic so there is a lot of overgrown vegetation. Start on the paved portion instead.

It's a good trail for walking. Do not take you dog down to the water, lots of broken glass, which is easy to avoid. But other than that, it's a great trail for a stroll.

A little mud in the middle part of the trail just past the ball field. But put the bike in a lower gear and made it through

Great trail for something that runs through downtown, not short trail like other user said just disjointed at the train station but picks up again on the other side. Can't ask for better for a downtown nature trail

Would've been much nicer without all the garbage littering the trail. There was broken glass everywhere down by the river - dog owners beware! Definitely wouldn't recommend bringing your 4-legged friends. Unfortunate.
