This is a piece of the Back Cove bike trail. You can jump on it many places. For example, you can park your vehicle just off Marginal Way and take a spin around Baxter Boulevard, over Tukey's Bridge, along the Waste Treatment Plant, down a slight hill, and enjoy the view of open water to your left. You traverse this quarter mile stretch to East End Beach and the then it is a straight-a-way to the Old Port, with stunning views of forts, lighthouses, islands, the Portland Yacht Club and Maine's Narrow Gauge Railroad train and museum.
All these views are free, except the train ride and museum.
What a deal!
Lunch in the Old Port!
Downside for some?
You need to pedal back to your car.
My J.C. Higgins, with silver fenders, would have made this trip in no time!
