Starting at the end of Front Street near the footbridge inBelfast, the city has converted a rail line to an attractive walking and biking path that borders the Passagassawakeag River. It is 2.3 miles one way, level, ending at City Point near the Belfast and Moosehead Lake railroad station. The crushed stone path is mostly shaded, going through hemlock groves, over a trestle bridge, and ending near the railroad station parking lot. Hikers can continue across Oakhill Road where the Sea trail connects for another 4-plus miles. Bikers can complete a loop back to the footbridge by taking a right on Kaler Road (becomes Robbins Rd), and riding Robbins Road about 3.5 miles back to Belfast. This area of East Belfast goes through rolling hills and farmland with very little traffic. After crossing Route 1 it’s a short distance to access Footbridge Road connecting to the east side of the footbridge.
