My son and I were in South Portland for the state jazz festival so afterwards we took advantage of the warm 49 degree weather and went to Back Cove in Portland. It was windy, and the trail was muddy from the melted snow, but it was fun.
We lived in the Portland area for 19 years and visited Back Cove many times. It offers great views of the city, Casco Bay and Back Cove, and provides a chance to get some exercise without having to travel far (assuming you are already in Portland).
Here is the trail map.
