Philbrick Trail (Debe River Walk)


Debe River Walk Trail

With 800 feet of river frontage, the 5.6 acre George Overlook parcel, part of the Run of River project, provides out-standing scenic views and provides access to the river for recreational activ-ities such as biking, hiking and picnicking. The River Walk, an all purpose ADA accessible walkway, was completed in 2012 and runs from Mt Pleasant Street (near the walking bridge to town) to the waste water treatment plant on Joyce Street where it connects with the canoe portage site, the Philbrick Trails, and the River's Edge Bike Park.

Philbrick Trails 34.0 acres

This scenic parcel features both upland and riparian wildlife habitat as well as approximately 1,200 feet of river frontage. This property provides a network of public trails designed for non-motorized use in partnership with the Town of Skowhegan. The trail system begins with the Blue Trail, a one mile loop through primarily upland wooded habitat and a second slightly steeper trail, the Yellow Trail, which loops from the Blue Trail. NOTE: Other trails are available but not yet plotted on this map.
