More about us...
Cape Elizabeth, Fort Williams and Portland Head Light
Accessible via a bridge with a very safe bike and pedestrian path, Cape Elizabeth, home of the waterfront Fort Williams Park, offers excellent biking and hiking options. Ride your bike all the way to the Portland Head Light, only 5miles from downtown, for stunning views of the entrance to Casco Bay. From the marinas, head south on Commercial St, cross the bridge and follow the quiet waterfront streets to Fort Williams Park.
Eastern Prom Pathway
Starting a short distance from the Old Port’s marinas, at the Casco Bay Lines Ferry, is the Eastern Prom Pathway. This one mile long harborside stroll is suitable for walking or biking and offers gorgeous views of the bay.
Eastern Promenade Park
This 68 acre park is on the eastern shore of Portland and offers views of the city skyline. Following the pathway, you continue on to Back Cove Pathway, a 3.5 mile loop around Back Cove tidal pond. An ideal place for walking, running, biking and dog walking.
