Androscoggin Riverlands State Park

Maine is planning its first new major state park in more than a quarter century.
These lands include 2,258 acres along the west shore in Turner, and 330 acres along the east shore in Leeds, known collectively as the Androscoggin Riverlands.

The land includes significant wildlife habitat; river shore, lakeshore and upland natural communities; historic landscapes; scenic vistas; and an existing recreational trails network.
This property is already widely-used for both motorized and non-motorized land and water recreation. There are presently 15 miles of multi-use trails that follow old roads on the property; and about 8 miles of hiking trails. [Link]
