"A short, easy loop trail circles the scenic island, famous for its fairy village where you, too, can create a fairy house from found natural objects. As soon as you set foot on 100-acre Mackworth Island, it’s easy to see why the trailhead parking lot is often full. Its close proximity to Portland offers visitors quick and easy access to the splendid natural world. But it’s something more than that: from its unique blend of human and natural history to its famous fairy village, this place is magical. Plan to visit on a weekday or during non-peak hours, early in the morning or late in the day, as parking is very limited." Read more
