One of the best views in Maine! The last half mile is a pretty good hike uphill. The snow isn’t packed down in all the areas. Hiked up with my running shoes and spikes - worked fine enough! First part of the trail is as wide as a road and perfect for cross country skiing.

This is a great, easy trail. One of our favorite places to hike.

We've gone there twice from the north entrance. Once hiking and once snow shoeing. Both times we had the picnic table at the field to ourselves. Nice to have an outhouse at the beginning and at the field.

Pretty easy hike, dirt road out to trail is pure ice this time of year

Hiked this in 9/2016. Great views from top. Nice hike.

Perfect trail right in Portland

Well maintained trail, even with snow. I was concerned, but it was compacted and I was able to walk merely in hiking boots without any issues.

It's a beautiful spot, a lovely walk. Easy, and accessible by all abilities, but the trail being gravel and dirt, is not wheelchair accessible.

Nicely groomed, should probably be listed as “easy”. Thank you!

Did this yesterday with my 14 year old dog who is in great shape. Lots of side trails to add to the mileage. Beautiful changes in scenery. Not sure why this is rated as moderate. I love it!

Relaxing early morning stroll.

great views at summit

5 minutes from downtown Portland and you couldn't feel more away from it all. Great for dogs!

Don't be fooled by the mileage, the terrain and trail selection more than make up for it. Nice hills and scenery along the way make for a great run.

Lots of trails crossing back and forth over themselves, hard to stick with a trail. We loved the old foundation near the water in the middle of no where.

Flat and very quiet. I watched a beaver swimming around for quite awhile along the river. Will be great to snowshoe in winter.

Best view of Penobscot Bay

Easy walking trail in. Steeper the closer we got to the falls. Nice lookout spots.

The scenery & terrain was nice. Trail could have been marked a bit better.

Love bringing my dog here! Lots of trails and a big field to throw the ball!!

Went on a really foggy day so I couldn't see anything from the top. Still a really fun fairly easy hike. It was pretty cool to be in the fog at the top and a little like being in a video game.

a very relaxing walk. we did not see another person on the trail. easy hike but watch the rocks and roots.

Loved it. Great trail, beautiful summit views.

I live in Portland so Mackworth is my go-to when I just need some fresh air and trees. It's a quick walk around the loop, but at low tide it's fun to beachcomb around the island too. Beautiful views across Casco Bay.

Easy and gentle walk, I wouldn't consider it a hike. Beautiful scenery

Beautiful Falls. Easy Hike/Walk down to the viewing platforms. Out and back in less than 1 hour.

Easy hike. The trail was well marked. The view at the top was amazing. We had packed a lunch and enjoyed that once we reached the summit.

Fantastic reward for a fairly easy and short hike.

Beautiful rocky coastline scenery but don't look down at all of the cigarette butts. Due to it's location near summer rentals and short trail length, it's obvious many lazy cigarette smokers waddle down this trail to "experience" nature and leave their filth behind.
