Pet Friendly Monhegan Island trails
Monhegan Island trails About 12 miles of trails, often steep and strenuous, lead through wooded areas and over rocky ledges up to the highest ocean cliffs on the Maine coastline. Volunteers and experienced woodsmen work tirelessly to improve the trails but there will always be a slippery spot or a steep climb. Get a trail map at an Island shop before setting out with your leashed dog. Most of the Island is wild land, with woods and undergrowth so thick you can’t cut across from one trail to another without becoming lost. The trail map published by the Monhegan Associates, showing trails, their names, their numbers, and their difficulty, is reliable, cheap, and easily available. You can view it online but really should plan on purchasing one (for a nominal fee) to carry when you hike away from the Village. You’ll be charged boat fare for your dog and are expected to dispose of its waste as in a city. See Details
Androscoggin River Bicycle & Pedestrian Path This is primarily an on-leash walk, but you are likely to come across a few well-behaved dogs off-leash. It is a paved “trail” that goes from the Cooks Corner area to Brunswick and is about 3.5 miles long (in one direction). People bike, Rollerblade, walk with baby carriages, jog, walk or run with their pets, and speed-walk here at all times of year. The road is plowed and sanded in the wintertime. See Details
