Presque Isle Bike Path

Trailhead

The downtown trailhead is located next to Riverside Park where there is a large public parking lot. The trail’s northeast terminus is located at the intersection of Carmichael Street and Rice Street.  However, the path/trail can be accessed from any locations where a street intersects the trail/path.

Description

The Presque Isle Bike Path is a 4-mile walkway running through the city of Presque Isle. It passes through the pretty Riverside Park in downtown Presque Isle, the University of Maine at Presque Isle campus and its wind turbine, Pine Street Elementary School where access to the Mantle Lake Park takes only couple of minutes, the little Downing Park, and Presque Isle High School and Zippel Elementary School before heading north to North Street. The path/trail is paved and has very little slope, making it optimal for light walking, jogging, and biking. Maintained by the Presque Isle Parks and Recreation Department, the path/trail is plowed in the winter and is accessible year-round. Amenities along the trail include sheltered and open benches, a picnic area at the Riverside Park by Presque Isle Stream, and two playgrounds (one is located at the Riverside Park and the other is in Pine Street Elementary School). Dog waste bags are provided along the length of the path/trail free of charge.

Stop at street intersections and watch traffic.
