DownEast Sunrise Trail for Biking and Hiking

Published on January 6, 2017 by Maria Lamb

 

Have you ever heard of the DownEast Sunrise Trail?  It's a multi-use trail that starts (or ends) in Calais, Maine, rambles through Machias, Columbia Falls, Cherryfield and other picturesque little towns on it's way to Ellsworth  and connects with other trails all the way to Key West, Florida!  You can bike, walk, ATV, snowmobile, cross-country ski or even take your horse.  Visit the webpage, as it's filled with maps, itineraries and current conditions.  This trail is a little gem in our area.  Although the trail sticks mostly sticks close to the main roads, it comes within a mile of our Featherbed Island House, making it a perfect lodging choice for bikers.

Meet The Author
Maria received degrees in both business and psychology and had worked as both a travel professional and a real estate agent when she realized that she could combine both of her passions — travel and residential real estate and design. Managing vacation rental properties since 2003, she has spent countless hours obsessively networking with other vacation rental professionals. Her love for residential architecture and beautiful landscapes has led Maria to collect houses around the globe, including one purchased sight unseen on the Bay of Fundy in Canada. She’s also been lucky to live in some really cool locales – an 18th century carriage house on Beacon Hill in Boston, a medieval castle in Europe, several resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and a historic Spanish-eclectic Pacific view home in southern California. Maria currently divides her time between an artsy farmhouse in Machiasport, Maine, a quintessential cape house on Cape Cod and a beach cottage in tiny Phinney Cove, Nova Scotia. Oh, and her, oh-so-chaotic, home life consists of a musician hubby, two teenagers, four cats, two dogs and a diaper-wearing house-chicken.
