Highlands Trail, Cape Elizabeth


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: less than a mile from end to end
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: little pond

This is a lovely, short, easy trail linking Broad Cove to Two Lights Road. You’ll walk by some small ponds. This trail is part of the town’s Greenbelt. There are no obvious places to park — it really seems more a trail used by people living nearby. You could easily park at Kettle Cove and walk over.

Directions: You can pick up the trail from two spots on Two Lights Road, which are marked with little green G signs. Or you could pick up the trailhead where Pine Ridge Road in Broad Cove starts to loop around.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
