The 87.9-mile Downeast Sunrise Trail passes through the woods, marshlands, and coastal villages of Hancock and Washington counties. Many users experience the trail by exploring one of its three segments: the Eastern, Central or Western trail segments. These segments are described on three individual maps available for download. There are many points of interest in each of the three segments of the Down East Sunrise Trail. We recommend reviewing and printing the segment maps to see the points of interest and locations for parking.
