Cape Elizabeth is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Portland Head Light is a famous and frequently photographed lighthouse inside of the Fort Williams Park, and guards the entrance to the Portland Harbor and Casco Bay that sees thousands of huge cruise ships, commercial carriers and smaller pleasure boats pass by every year.

Fort Williams Park itself is very dog-friendly, and many folks bring their fur-babies there to explore the crumbling Goddard Mansion, visit the Arboretum, romp on the playing fields, or follow the ocean walk pathways along the rocky and turbulent shore. If it’s a foggy day, be aware that the massive foghorn at the Head Light can be especially distressing to our 4-legged friends. Dogs must be leashed while on the grounds of Fort Williams, except for a small area near the barracks that is marked where they can roam free. The park is open sunrise to sunset all year, and is free.

One of Cape Elizabeth’s best assets is the network of trails owned and maintained by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. One of these, the Cross Town Trail, is 7.5 miles long and begins at the coastline, crossing wooded terrain and bridges, over wetlands populated with waterfowl, fish and small mammals. The trail ends at another popular spot on the ocean’s shore, Kettle Cove, a definite must see!

    #2 Shore Acres/ Trundy Point

    36

    Tucked away between the ocean and busy Route 77, this neighborhood provides a quiet, old-fashioned rural neighborhood feel. An easy walk east brings one to the beaches of Broad Cove and Trundy Point, and dogs are as frequent a sight here as bicycles and walkers.  Leashes are required, and the pebbled beaches are perfect for sniffing out small crustaceans, starfish and sea glass at low tide. There is a working farm here named Alewives’ Farm, where you can buy fresh produce and live lobsters for steaming back at the cottage. There is also the C Salt Gourmet Market ,which will provide dog bowls at their outdoor tables for sharing your breakfast and lunch fare with your fur-buddy.

    The Cross Hill neighborhood is home to Jordan’s Farm, which has existed for generations and has provided local produce to farm stands, grocery stores and restaurants for many years. The farm is also home to a dog-friendly eatery called The Well at Jordan’s Farm.  A small menu of locally sourced ingredients prepared simply and deliciously can be shared with your canine companion at their outdoor picnic tables. The menu changes daily to accommodate availability of the freshest and best ingredients, but always offers chicken, seafood and vegetarian items as staples. Food is prepared fresh and to order, but the simple preparations make for short waiting times, during which you can enjoy some of their house made iced tea. Other beverages are BYOB.

    Delano Park is home to Robinson Woods Park, a dog-friendly expanse which covers 145 acres of woodland, fields and ponds, and features walking and hiking trails that meander among centuries-old trees. The forest floor through which the trails of Robinson Woods travel is crisscrossed by streams opening into pools where wildflowers and ferns flourish. In an adjacent area of the park called Robinson Woods II, fields and wetlands with numerous wading birds and water mammals can be found. What a smorgasbord of sights and smells for our fur-buddy to enjoy! Before 10 am, dogs may roam off-leash at Robinson Woods II, and after 4 pm at Robinson Woods I. The park provides waste bags and receptacles at the entrance.

    In the middle of the West Fowler neighborhood sits the Great Pond, Cape Elizabeth’s largest wetland. This natural resource for fishing, bird watching, or hunting also includes the Great Pond link, a trail system that stretches from the busy Route 77 to the Alewife Brook. The Great Pond Trail is an easy-to-moderate walk, along raised wooden boardwalk for most of the 1.5-mile distance. Signs are posted along the trail to designate sights such as wooded fields and beaver lodges. The Pond is also frequently used by kayakers who can enjoy the unique perspective of the cattails, tall grasses and activities among them from the water. Fido is welcome to join his human at Great Pond, leashed or enclosed in a kayak, year-round.
