  • A nice walking path to the Eastern side of Portland. We used this path to make a loop from the Old Port to the Portland Observatory - a bit of a walk but very relaxing.  more »
  • This informative walk gives you a nice view over Porland. Everywhere there are info panels the hard past. Very cool!
