Trundy Point, Cape Elizabeth


  • Preserve Size: 7 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .3 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Sights: cove, pocket beach, rocky promontory

Trundy Point isn’t so much a place to walk as it is a spot to visit. The point’s small cove and beach, and massive jutting rock that looms over both, is a beautiful place to hang out if you want to read by the ocean, look for shells or seabirds, or check out the crashing surf after a storm.

There is a scruffy little loop trail on the headland. It’s a bit of a steep scramble up the side of the flaky rock, but once you’re on the top, the path is relatively easy and flat. This place is cherished by local people.

Directions: The point is in the neighborhood of Shore Acres. From Old Orchard House Road, turn onto Trundy Road to enter Shore Acres. Follow the road more of less straight until it meets Reef Road, which forms a loop. When Reef Road curves around near the ocean, you’ll see the cove. There is a small pullover space for two or so cars.

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