Fore River Sanctuary (Portland)
I drove my son to meet some friends in Portland today and used the opportunity to hike 3.7 miles in the Fore River Preserve in Portland.
The 85-acre preserve managed by Portland Trails feels much larger, and is home to Jewell Falls, Portland’s only natural waterfall. It also contains the former Cumberland and Oxford Canal, salt and freshwater marshs and miles of trails.
Jewell Falls was little more than a trickle today due to the recent dry weather.
