Access to these trails are from either Boothby or Providence Avenues in South Portland. Parking in street side or at a small parking pullout area on Boothby Avenue, 200 feet north of its intersection with Beaufort Street where the brook crosses under the road.


This small network provides access to Trout Brook and a wooded trails in the middle of a residential area. From Boothbay Avenue, walk east into the bird-filled woods to where the trail splits to either follow Trout Brook (right) or wind through a wooded area (left). The more adventurous route is along Trout Brook with some steeper pitches but with the reward of access to the brook at several places. Both trails connect to Providence Avenue. On Providence Avenue, the trail picks up south of Trout Brook to continue with steep switchbacks up hill connecting to Parrot Street.
