Friends of Acadia donates community trail property to town of Trenton



TRENTON — Friends of Acadia has announced that a 216-acre gift of land has been accepted by the town of Trenton and its residents.

At the Trenton Selectmen’s meeting on Dec. 10, Friends of Acadia President David MacDonald and Conservation Director Stephanie Clement formally donated a parcel of land located behind the Acadia Gateway Center on Route 3 to the town of Trenton.

The property was part of the “Crippens Creek” land that Friends of Acadia purchased in 2007. After selling a portion to the Maine Department of Transportation to construct the Acadia Gateway Center, Friends of Acadia enlisted community volunteer support to construct a recreational trail through the remaining portion.

The property is open to the public.
