Visit the Lisbon Trail System

AL-logo4

The Lisbon Trail System welcomes you to visit and enjoy the experience with others who are celebrating the beauty, and you can bring your pet.  If you wish to share your experience or have suggestions, send a comment.

We suggest you explore the Androscoggin riverfront area to consider possibilities for the trail system to promote the many great experiences Lisbon has to offer.  Beaver park, Lisbon Village and and the rail line to Lewiston are connections for future trail expansion. The rail corridor connection from Lisbon Falls to Summer Street Park and Topsham also offer great possibilities for getting around and appreciating the environment.

For more information be sure to visit the kiosk at the Papermill trail head.  You will find maps, guides and educational items to check out. A portable restroom is provided for your comfort.
