Fore River Parkway Trail Description

Portland’s Fore River Parkway Trail provides an important transportation link in the community while at the same time offering sweeping views of the Fore River. At the north end of the trail, you’ll find the Portland Transportation Center, a busy bus and train hub. From there, the paved pathway heads southeast.

As you approach trail’s end, you’ll pass Mercy Hospital; you can take the crosswalk across Fore River Parkway to reach the hospital’s campus, where you’ll find benches, a bike rack, and a short loop around a pond. The trail ends a little farther on at W. Commercial Street.

Parking and Trail Access

Access the trail via bus or train from the Portland Transportation Center (100 Thompson’s Point Rd.).
