Great trail! A hidden gem in the city.

Well, marked, easy trail for relative beginners or hiking with kids (as I was today).

Nice trail, not too challenging for this beginning hiker. The green markers weren't very visible in some places, so we weren't sure where to go at times, but it wasn't too hard to figure out overall.

An easy walk around a cove off Casco Bay. The path is crushed stone dust and is quite popular with the locals. You will see many runners, joggers, dogs, baby carriages and bikes. There is two parking areas at opposite sides of the loop.

Very nice, and easy walk. Very quiet considering you are right in Portland.

Nice set of trails right here in Portland. You would not even know you were in the city. Several ponds offer a variety of wildlife.

Great city trail. As someone who lives in Portland, this trail serves as a fulfilling place to get in a trail run or short mountain biking workout. I give it three stars because I'm comparing it to the white mountain hikes of NH, which is apples and oranges.

Loved it peaceful

Nice set of trails. We were geocaching and used the flat trails. Beautiful cemetery and pond area. Watch the dog when sharing the trails with bikers.
