Cape Elizabeth, Maine Map

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.

Short, sweet and buggy ;) great lil'hike.

What can I saw that has not been said already? Classic Maine coast. Great for entertaining visitors (who need an easy hike with huge rewards). Can feel crowded in peak tourist season. Take a lunch.

For what this is, basically just a picnic spot near the ocean. It deserves 5 stars. There is no substantial trail in the park.

My parents are from Portland and Biddeford, and I loved our periodic visits to southern Maine when I was young. We enjoyed the Cape Elizabeth area, and I have been to Two Lights many times over the years. I have vivid memories of climbing on the rocks as a kid...and of the foghorn going off once when we were within a few feet of it!

Short loop around the perimeter. Excellent rock formations on the shore and spectacular views of the ocean. Plenty of picnic tables and charcoal pits with ocean views. Worth packing a picnic lunch.

Great trail with many routes to each side of the preserve, my favorite is the pond trail running along a large grassy field, I built my Eagle Scout project Inside the preserve near stone gate on the western side, a 127' Boardwalk over a stream and swampy terrain, it's nice to walk through and check it out sometimes.

Cool little hike in the middle of Cape Elizabeth. Convenient and feels remote. Great for snow-shoeing.

This extensive network of trails connects Belfield Extension with Fort Williams Park through mature growth woods and wetlands that provide a range of trail experiences from easy, level trails to more moderate hilly and narrow trails. Kid and dog friendly
