The Fore River Parkway Trail links the Portland Transportation Center bus/train station to West Commercial Street. The wide, paved trail features lovely views of the Fore River. Along the way it passes Mercy Hospital, with access to Mercy’s Pond Loop Trail, which offers excellent bird watching. While the Fore River Parkway Trail provides safe access to Danforth Street, it ends abruptly on West Commercial Street—cyclists and walkers should use caution until sidewalk improvements in this area are complete.
