Turkey Hill Farm Trail, Cape Elizabeth


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: .7 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: forest, old military towers

This is an interesting Cape Elizabeth Land Trust parcel close to the Shore Acres neighborhood, used mostly by neighbors. The trails are unmarked, and it’s unclear exactly where the preserve boundaries begin and end. The trails seem to continue on to someone’s private land — someone who doesn’t seem to mind people walking there — and up to some dilapidated military towers from a bygone era. I’ve tried to show the trails that I think are mostly on public property. Also nearby are some trails called Whaleback trails, across Old Ocean House and down Whaleback Way.

Directions: The best place to access these trails is from Old Ocean House Road, close to where it meets Trundy Road. Or you can go down Aaron Road, which dead ends at a water tower and close to the very small trail system.


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