Map shows trails in Cumberland County

  • Great Pond Trail — A 1.5-mile, there-and-back trail by the lovely Great Pond, with awesome boardwalks. Popular with locals.
  • Spurwink Trail — A 50-acre preserve that borders the Spurwink Marsh and includes meadows. 
  • Gull Crest and Town Center trails — A large preserve with 4-5 miles of walking of skiing, mostly wooded but with some lovely fields. 
  • Dyer-Hutchinson Farm trails — A big preserve, with lots of trails to explore. 
  • Robinson Woods and Stonegate Trail — Lots of protected acres here and miles of walking if you hike in these two connected preserves. Robinson Woods appears to be well used.
  • Hobstone Woods — 21 acres and about a 1-mile loop in woods. 
  • Runaway Farm — A short walk on a 19-acre preserve. The trail can be muddy and a bit overgrown. 
  • Two Lights State Park — A famous, popular, rather spectacular 41-acre park with about 1 mile of easy trails. Be very careful of the surf if you climb down onto the rocks.
  • Crescent Beach State Park — Another famous, popular, rather spectacular 100-acre park with a 2.7-mile loop and 1-mile beach. Dogs allowed off-season.
  • Turkey Hill — This is a small protected area with unmarked trails, used mostly by neighbors. There are some interesting old military ruins.
  • Highlands Trail — A short but very pleasant trail linking Broad Cove to Two Lights Road. 
  • Dyer Woods — A sweet “pocket” park for local people to enjoy, with well-blazed and well-built trails.
