Description

The Stroudwater Trail connects the Portland peninsula to the Westbrook City Line. This  trail is heavily wooded with both flat and hilly sections. The surface is gravel and packed earth. Benches have been provided at scenic outlooks. The west end of trail between Blueberry Road and Hutchins Drive is closed in winter as it crosses through one of Portland’s few remaining deer yards and provides valuable deer habitat during the winter months. The trail crosses under the Maine Turnpike behind the UNUM campus and continues east along the river at a flat slope, with boardwalks traversing wet areas. Near the River’s Edge Drive trailhead, the gravel trail ascends up a steep grade via stairs to reach Congress Street.
