New Englanders inherited a vast network of Indian Trails. Two of the most well known are the Mohawk Trail and the Kennebunk Trail, later known as the Kennebunk Road. The Kennebunk Road was a coastal route that connected Augusta, Maine with Massachusetts, and was an important route from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Boston, Massachusetts. It was also used from 1630-1761 as a migration route for settlers from Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine.
