Trail Team

The Merrymeeting Trailblazers

The Merrymeeting Trailblazers is a group of local citizens, town staff, and nonprofits that have been working together to build support for the trail since 2008. The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust currently serves as the coordinator and fiscal agent for this group. Merrymeeting Trailblazers is the official ‘friends group’ for the trail, rallying supporters from our region and working to raise funds.

The Merrymeeting Trail Board of Supervisors

The Board of Supervisors is the governing entity formed to oversee the development, management, and maintenance of the trail. The board was formed by an interlocal agreement in 2015 by the towns of Topsham, Bowdoinham, Richmond, and Gardiner. Towns made a commitment to the trail in forming this agreement and each nominate two representatives to serve on the Board.

Current Board of Supervisors Members:


  • Victor Langelo
  • Matt Nixon


  • Nicole Briand
  • Jeremy Cluchey (Chair)


  • Randy Bodge
  • Darryl Sterling


  • Tom Reeves
