The town of Lisbon recently celebrated the near completion of its Androscoggin River Trail, stretching from the Sabattus River boat launch off Route 196 to the heart of Lisbon village.

“The contractor is now working on the punch-out list,” said Ryan Leighton, Public Works director for the town. “The trail is substantially complete.”

The Androscoggin River Trail is the third and final section of the Lisbon Trails System, which now links Lisbon Falls to the center of Lisbon village. The multi-use paved pathway is 9 to 10 feet wide and 3.35 miles long, starting at a municipal parking lot near the intersection of Webster Road and St. Ann Street in Lisbon Falls and terminating at a Maine DOT Park and Ride off Davis Street in Lisbon.

The system is a small segment of the East Coast Greenway, a 2,900-mile system of trails linking towns along the eastern seaboard.
