Portland Trails information
Thanks to the efforts of the Portland Trails conservation organization, there are some 50 miles of multiuse trails sprinkled about the Greater Portland area. One of the most popular paths is the 3.5-mile Back Cove Loop, which provides excellent water and city views northwest of the city center. This trail connects to the Eastern Promenade, a 2.1-mile paved waterfront path that follows a former railway, just east of East End.
