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.

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.

A perfect trail for when you want to go somewhere not too far from downtown Portland. The trail circles the island and there are beautiful views out to the water on every step. There is enough forestry to keep things cool but not too much to detract from the views. A perfectly pleasant afternoon walk.

Beautiful place for a short hike or spend the whole day swimming and picnicking. Bring your bug spray!

Easily accessible, the only issue is the parking.
