I love to get outside for a walk but sometimes in the spring woods trails are a little on the mucky side.  Which is why I appreciate the paved and firm paths on both sides of the Penobscot River.  These trails are kept up by the land trusts in each town for public use and will be celebrated on May 31st with extra activities and fun to be had on both sides.

Bangor-Brewer Trails Day starting at 10 am at the Bangor Waterfront. Celebrate opportunities for healthy outdoor exercise on BOTH sides of the Penobscot, much of it on easy, paved trails.

On the Bangor side: The Bangor Land Trust  has the Penobscot River Walkway runs for just 0.5 mile through Bangor's scenic Waterfront Park between Union Street and the intersection of Railroad and Front streets. The trail hugs the riverbank and several events are held at the park year-round.

On the Brewer side: One walkway comes off the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge and goes into south Brewer and also up Route 9 a bit Indian Trail Park has a 1.8 great walk that is a little more challenging.
