Urban Hike: Maine –> Portland –> West End
This will be a meandering hike covering the Western Promenade & West End of Portland. The West End is a downtown neighborhood in Portland, Maine. It is located on the western side of Portland's peninsula and is noted for its architecture and history. The neighborhood is home to a large number of historic homes and parks and, in 2010, it was called "one of the best preserved Victorian neighborhoods in the country" https://www.oldport.com/city-life/west-end-story/#close PROPOSED HIKE: On Sunday, Nov 18 we will meet at 10:00 am. We will walk about 6+ miles (can’t walk the entire distance – then grab an Uber and meet us for lunch). From the Parking area we will check out the Western Cemetery. We will walk along the Western Promenade and meander up and down the major streets between the Promenade and High Street. Afterwards we’ll walk downtown and grab lunch. After lunch we’ll cover areas we missed as we head back to our cars. There are facilities and corner stores along the way where we can take breaks or get food/snacks.
