      Presumpscot River Preserve The Presumpscot River flows from Sebago Lake to its outlet at Casco Bay. In 2001 Portland Trails and the City of Portland Landbank Commission teamed up with the state’s Land for Maine’s Future program to save this beautiful piece of land by creating a 48-acre public nature preserve. This exceptionally beautiful trail follows a deep ravine away from the residential neighborhood and into the Preserve. The trail is very steep in places. Boardwalks and bridges pass over wet areas, while allowing for mountain bike access. Once the trail reaches the river’s edge, signs direct the visitor upstream or downstream, both offering spectacular river views. Upstream, the trail features several short loops into wooded, upland areas. That trail continues along the shoreline under the highway overpass for another ¾ mile. Downstream, the trail crosses through property protected by the Falmouth Conservation Trust before it reaches Presumpscot Falls . The trail includes a portage to help paddlers around these swift rapids. Please respect private property at the end of the trail. - See more at: http://trails.org/our-trails/presumpscot-river-preserve/#sthash.GqvVBitB.dpuf
