About Capisic Brook Trail

Capisic Park is a city-owned 18-acre nature preserve that affords fine views of Capisic Pond, Portland ‘s largest freshwater pond. Offers great birdwatching as well as ice skating in the winter. Open from dawn to dusk.

Moderately sloping dirt path through woods and fields from Macy Street (off Capisic Street ) to Lucas Street (off Brighton Avenue ). Several undeveloped side trails offer exploration of the pond and surrounding wetlands. Benches are provided along the trail.
