I liked having my dog off leash and in a shaded area. There are no markers for the trails but it’s a pretty small area so you can’t get too lost.

Froze, but caught some pretty views. These trails were less wooded than I expected (more like paths around fields and along the shore ) They’re definitely better for sunny, less windy days. We will have to revisit when everything is grown in because other than the beautiful ocean views, I’m not sure why this one gets such high ratings.

Nice enough trail, a bit of spring mud here and there which is expected. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes! Appeard to be newer growth forest, there are interesting signs detailing some of the history of the woods as a source of timber for shipbuilding, and some lovely stone walls. Found a local geocache type thing tucked under a large rock outcropping on the white blazed trail.

It’s definitely mud season! Wear some good shoes for some really wet spots. A very nice walk. Took me probably an hour at an easy pace

Nice trail at edge of a neighborhood. Walked very close to back of homes through a couple extended portions of the hike, but much of the loop is well wooded.

Wide open, well maintained trails. Great views of water. Lots of traffic noise from 295, otherwise very enjoyable.

With the exception of one spot, the blowdown has been cleared from the trail. At that spot, with some imagination, you can easily walk around the tree that came down.

There are a lot of downed trees from the bomb cyclone storm. Not many of the trails are a clear easy walk. Tons of climbing over trees and roots.

This is an absolutely beautiful park. you can follow the winding trails all through the meadows. It's very well maintained. I spent an hour and walked the whole trail. I look forward to coming back and doing this again.

Well marked trails right off 88 in Falmouth. Very popular place to walk dogs, watch for blow down trees!

easy level terrain, nice for families to walk.

This is a wonderful urban trail system with well-marked trails of green, yellow, red and white markers. Portland Trails has done a great job marking and maintaining the trail (including pointing out what plants are invasive). There are several marked posts containing a number but I have yet to find what these numbers represent. Hopefully, someone will post what they represent. Dogs can run free once they get beyond 300 yards from the parking area.

We discovered Gilsland by happy accident. It's lovely! Little bit of woods, little bit of meadow, little bit of marsh and water views. Perfect to burn some kid energy and view birds, wildflowers, and bugs.

Gorgeous

Beautiful land with water views here and there through the trail. Well maintained. Easy. Great for families with small kids. We didn't go in, but there was a science center of sorts to explore. It was our back up plan after Mackworth island parking was full. Will definitely be back!!! I'll bring binoculars next time. Great place to bird watch.

For anyone who loves bird watching, this is a great location. The trail even includes an osprey stand! Easy to follow with several places to just sit and observe.
