A true gem of Portland that really gives you a great perspective of the city. A magical place and fun easy loop for anyone. Spectacular views.

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.

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.

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.
