      The Bethel Pathway has two distinct sections.

      Directions are given from Davis Park going west, and from Davis Park going east. Of course, it is possible to start from any of the trailheads or even from several places in the village. The Pathway is easy to follow and is close to roads, homes, and businesses..

      The first section, going from Davis Park to the west, goes past the skate park, over a miniature covered bridge, and out to US Route 2 where there is another parking lot. The pathway then goes over the impressive single span bridge over the Androscoggin, loops back on itself, and continues along the other shore of the river, past the parking lot and water slide of the Big Adventure Center. It currently ends soon after, on the North Road. This very popular section of the Pathway is 0.9 miles in one direction. With its flat, paved surface of about twelve feet wide, this section is wheelchair-accessible and suitable for strollers and anyone with mobility challenges as well. Several benches provide places to rest along the way.

      The second section leaves from Davis Park and goes east, over Alder Stream and then crosses the Intervale Road. From here the path surface changes to crushed stone, but is still very hard and smooth, and continues across the Mahoosuc Land Trust's Gateway property to the upper end of Sunset Road, where there is parking on the shoulder of the road.
