The Eastern Promenade Trail is a 1.8 mile one-way trail that starts at
the seaport in Portland and ends near the water treatment plant. Plan on
hiking 3.6 miles if you plan to do this whole trail out and back.
Along the trail are views of the boats in Portland's bay, views of the surrounding islands in the bay like Peaks island, Fort Levett, and Long Island. This is a fairly popular biking trail as well, so be mindful of bikers.
Along the northern section of the trail is a water treatment plant. This area isn't worth seeing unless you're just passing on through. You can shorten the trip by turning back around mile marker 1.4 or when you reach the railroad crossing on the trail.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
