Shore walk around Mackworth Island.
I used to walk this every day. The only issue is parking, but if you are an early bird like me, you should get a spot no problem. Parking before the bridge is for Falmouth residents ONLY. You will get ticketed or towed if not a resident. Mackworth Island is a state Park, and there is a fee.
Beautiful and relaxing.
easy walking on the trail, for more challenge one can travel along the shore in many areas.
A nice walk! I recommend park off the island and walk in via the bridge.
Better to leave Fido at home if he doesn't like to be on a leash. Entrance fee. Great geocaching walk.
Very nice state park. Fee is a dollar a head. A very enjoyable walk around the perimeter of the island with great views of east Portland, Fort Gorges and other close islands. Beach and shore access.
This is a state park and costs money to enter. No where in the description is that stated at all.
Fun for everyone, great when it's a lower traffic time out there.
Great trail, awesome view
I love this trail for a quiet, private run. I don't like lots of other people around when I go for a run, and I love Mackworth for that sense of privacy. Fun loop, lovely views, and plenty shelter from trees and twists and turns, keeping it interesting. Great spot.
Nice nature walk
Very easy and pretty. The faerie village is so cute.
Sweet little trail, easy enough to even accommodate a baby stroller! Around the perimeter of the island so nice views the whole trail, steep at some bits so keep an eye on those kids!
beautiful island and great beach but the trail was too short
