Great little, highly accessible trail. Marked down as parking can be a nightmare. Nice for running if it’s not crowded.

Great trail with excellent views. It is high volume and can be tough at times to find parking. Dog friendly and great spots to stop and take in the beautiful views.

Lots of trails connect to the entrance White Trail. You could walk for miles and miles if you wanted. I wish people would clean up after their dogs more but maybe the piles are from the neighborhood dogs? I’d hate to have dogs not allowed because my Great Dane had a grand time today!

great trail. well maintained and great views of the bay. grey loons hugging the coastline and divin for fish. great striped bass fishing in season. just an all around great place. Enjoy..

great snowshoeing trail

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.

A wonderful place for mountain biking with minimal elevation changes but lots of challenges in the twists and turns. The red trail is more challenging than the other trails. Very well marked and easy to follow.

Great trek through the woods - nice ups and downs - the trails were marked very well.

Great time, did it today I’m 65 degree rain and it was fantastic

A great trail that is part of a much larger system. lots of joggers and bikers. The waterfall was dry this early September day.

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.

Dog friendly. Not much parking.

Beautiful but if you're driving be there early

Be mindful of the poison ivy that grows in abundance just off the trail.

Beautiful, peaceful.

Beautiful mid spring hike next to a waterfall; my 7 year old scampered happily along the trail. Spotted some lovely jack-in-the-pulpit stream side. Easy loop, close to Portland.

fairly simple scenic walk.

Some confusing trail markings, but hey, your in Falmouth. Place is pretty swell, lots of room to explore. There's a lot of variety in landscape too. Do this trail!

First run of the year(March), noticed some new signage and planks. Well maintained. This trail is rugged terrain, however. Be careful if you are traveling quickly. I have fallen hard out here on a bike, skis, and on foot.

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.

Whoever took a leaf blower to the trail, thank you! Nice touch given the amount of leaves in these woods.

Great trail but lots of leaves cover it - so watch out for roots and stumps!

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.

Relaxing trail, that is well marked. Only downfall is the sign on the road is very small and easy to miss.
