Wonderful bucolic views on this trail. A great place to run, walk animals or just go for a walk! I recommend going!

“A Great, Easy Bike Ride”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This is a beautiful 3.5 mile loop around Portland's Back Cove. It is a flat, well marked, hard packed path for walking or biking. It connects with the Eastern Promenade trail and the Bayside trail allowing you to do about 10 miles of off-road biking in downtown Portland.

i have walked many of our trails, and especially love the one below the eastern promenade, as it goes toward falmouth, a very peaceful and refreshing walk...

“Great location for a walk or a run”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you are a local or a visitor, this pathway is worth visiting. It encircles the Back Cove. It's a pretty walk around the cove. Just the right length walk to get you some exercise and sun in a unique setting.
