Trails and Memorial Paths of Mount Desert Island

part of the Mount Desert Island Cultural History Project

(updated 25 July 2013)

Welcome

to the Trails and Memorial Paths of Mount Desert Island home page, part of the Mount Desert Island Cultural History Project.

Purpose of this web page:

The purpose of this web page is to present, in an accessible way, information about Mount Desert Island’s trails and memorial paths. Eventually, a separate web page will be created for each trail/path and links will be provided below. For those of you who plan to visit Mount Desert Island, these write-ups may help you choose where you wish to hike (or not!).

A trail is listed under each town in which it occurs. Trail numbers are from Pathmakers: Cultural Landscape Report for the Historic Hiking Trail System of Mount Desert Island (ISBN 0-9779833-0-7), published in 2006 by the Olmstead Center for Landscape Preservation. Trails with numbers below 100 are marked and maintained trails on the east side of Mount Desert Island, and trails numbered in the 100s are marked and maintained on the west side of the island.

How to contribute:

All information (including images) should be e-mailed to museum@mdihistory.org or sent by traditional mail to MDI Trails and Memorial Paths, c/o Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, ME 04660.
