Any ocean view walk is great! Love the light houses

Trail not well marked and hard to follow without AllTrails app. Wish people would pick up the poop bags they leave in the middle of the trail... like at that point, why bother bagging it up? By leaving it there, one’s littering for other people to pick up the bags with someone else’s dog poop in it... other than that- trail is a fun, easy, walk-through to do with kids or a pooch.

The state park, although rather small, sits on the edge of rocky cliffs. The scenery from the trails is incredible, especially the waves crashing against the rocks. Even the portion through the woods was beautiful.

great view of the ocean. picnic along the trail is good because there is an abundance of picnic tables with the view of the ocean, and easy access.

The only problem with this trail is that the twin lighthouses are not visible from the trail. They are located at the end of the road rather than turning into the state park. Every other aspect of the trail is outstanding, well worth the effort. Have a picnic as you enjoy the waves crashing into the rocky coast. This trail will become a favorite.

Beautiful seacoast with waves smashing against them continuous on most days, but we picked a day when the fog rolled in so it was still pleasant but ideal

I would definitely recommend this amazing park to anyone. The hiking is easy but the scenery is amazing. There is a great trail that circles the park and on the north end has a short portion with some cool slate steps in the woods. There are many park benches that allow you to take a break and enjoy the rocky ocean view.

Took the eastern part of this trail first and went on to the pond loop. And the first half of this loop was a 4 or even 5. For so close to a city, this stretch was a nice hike. Plenty of roots and rocks to dodge, tons of turns and corners. fun for the dog and all. Some mud and bugs, but fine. Well marked- sort of, still easy to get off on a spur now and then. It was at about .6 miles left to the parking lot ( the western loop walking from the south) that it appears some owner has closed the trail. It was about 8pm which put me in a dilemna but I walked back south a half mile or so, to get on a road and hoof it to the parking lot the 'safe' way. I don't know if the owner or whoever has the right to what they did- a shame if they do, and if they don't have the right to close it I hope someone has a nice talk with them.

Great place for a nice casual hike! Water views all around and great for all ages.

Great view. No lighthouses.

Great group of trails connected on greenbelt. Well maintained and well marked.

Wonderful place to see the Maine Coast and forest! Great for kids, dogs, and non experienced hikers.

Well marked and easy to traverse, but every dog was off-leash, which made it hard to walk with my 3 year old. He kept getting knocked over by excited puppies. The trail was to supposed to be a leashed area, so we weren’t expecting that.

My favorite trails in Cape. I Recommend taking the longer blue loop to get the most out of it.

Walked all over this park. Great views, very little people during the week. Plenty of restrooms. A great place.

Very accessible, good place to take dogs year round

Easy walk and fantastic views

Just breathtaking!!

Incredible ocean views and a touch off the beaten path to escape vacation crowds. Come here for the cliffs and rock formations. Little picnic tables tucked away all over the park. Benches overlook the cliffs. It's about a 15 mile round trip bike ride from downtown Portland to Two Lights. I recommend a first stop in Fort Williams park, a lobster roll @ Bite into Maine and then end here. It's a perfect half day trip!

This was an awesome place to go for a walk. Beautiful scenery, amazing rocks and crashing waves. The iconic lighthouse is fun to see.
