We entered from the Blackstrap Hill Community Forest entrance this time and really enjoyed ourselves exploring. Lots of trails to choose from and very minimal bug activity. The look out has some great views from atop a big boulder. Plan on visiting again

Peaceful and nicely maintained with lots of wildlife (including a rather surprised broad-winged hawk). Trails are well marked and there are maps at most major intersections but there are a few small connections/offshoots not shown on the map which can get confusing. Frequent intersections with snowmobile trails but those are unmarked and less maintained so it's easy to stay on the correct path. Connection to the Lowell trail system is a huge plus!

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

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!

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.

great snowshoeing trail

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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

Nice trail. I went on 6/2/16 and the water was not flowing to make a waterfall. Still a nice hike in the woods.

My favorite trail run close to Portland. Less traveled than Blackstrap Preserve on the opposite side of the road. Trail drops slightly into a hemlock wetland at about the half way point, which I really enjoy. Toward the backside of the preserve there is a small rocky gorge if you have your eyes open. This preserve connects to Lowell Preserve at the farthest point.

trail is pretty easy great for walking with kids and dog. Lots of open forest . Waterfall is well not what I would call a waterfall it's some large rocks that the stream flows over. The rest of the trail is worth a hike plenty of trails for multiple trips.

A nice hike through hemlock and beech. Well traveled trail and very popular with mountain bikers.

01/15/2015 Nice winter trail that includes a river walk. Several signs on the trail pointing out the history, flora and fauna found in the area. Best seen in the spring and fall when there are more birds.
