Bug Light, South Portland

The Maine Eastern Trail is an easy, flat and scenic gravel trail that is ultimately planned to run between Kittery and Portland.  It is a key link in the Maine to Florida East Coast Greenway.  We'll be riding a largely finished stretch from Kennebunk to Bug Light on the coast of South Portland where one has a spectacular view of Portland Harbor and Casco Bay.  The total round trip is 58 miles with about 10 miles on roads including a couple of brief busy stretches.  Barring strong winds, it's about the easiest 58 miles you'll ever do.  We'll plan for lunch at SoPo Seafood in South Portland, which is 2 blocks off the trail.
