Go rollerblading on the Eastern Promenade Trail

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
rollerblading eastern promenade

Portland’s Eastern Promenade Trail runs for 2.1 miles along an old rail corridor and you’ll breathe in ocean air and take in harbor views the entire time you’re on it. It starts on the fringe of The Old Port and hooks up with the Back Cove Trail. So head into the depths of your basement or corner of your garage and find your rollerblades because this is a perfect spot to burn some calories while the seagulls soar above you and boats come and go before your eyes.
