Portland Trails information
Thanks to the efforts of the Portland Trails conservation organization, there are some 70 miles of multi-use trails sprinkled about the Greater Portland area. One of the most popular paths is the 3.6-mile Back Cove Trail , which provides excellent water and city views northwest of the city center.
This trail connects to the Eastern Promenade Trail , a 2.1-mile paved waterfront path that follows a former railway, running from the visitors center at Cruise Ship Pier. For a complete rundown of trails, with maps, visit the website.
