Yarmouth West Side Trail
Yarmouth - The West Side Trail in Yarmouth is the newest multi-use trail in the Portland area.
The trail is built primarily on the Central Maine Power transmission corridor which runs from the tip of Cousins Island to North Yarmouth along the western border of Yarmouth.
It's not your typical power line trail however.
Very little of the trail is on an existing service road and much of it resides inside the treeline.
Experienced riders will find the singletrack trail fun, flowy and not particularly technical (other than a few tight switchbacks).
Beginner riders will find some sections challenging but are encouraged to give it shot.
Best access for out of town riders is from the upper parking lot behind Tyler Technologies off of route 1 (see map below). Yarmouth is 15 minutes northeast of Portland along 295 and just southwest of Freeport, home of LL Bean.
