PORTLAND — Portland Trails has secured three easements to preserve access on three trails in Portland and Falmouth.
The group said in a press release that two of the easements will extend trails that are part of the Sebago to the Sea Trail:
An easement from the ’27 Gray Road Association joins the Presumpscot River Trail in Falmouth to the Presumpscot River Preserve Trail in Portland via a new bridge on Route 26, and an easement from J.B. Brown & Sons completes the Milliken Brook Trail, which connects the Back Cove Trail to the new Forest City Trail via Payson Park, Murray Street and University Park.
The third easement from People’s United Bank in Falmouth connects the Tidewater Farm Trail to the bicycle trail along Route 88.
Portland Trails, a nonprofit urban land trust, will begin building these trails this fall.
