Fore River Sanctuary  

This nature sanctuary is the home of Jewell Falls, Portland’s only natural waterfall. From the South entrance, the trail follows the former canal towpath at a flat grade for over a half-mile before turning north to cross wetland areas. As the trail heads uphill there is a loop trail which, at its highest point, leads to Jewell Falls. The Falls were donated to Portland Trails by the family of Tom Jewell, one of Portland Trails’ founders.
