The trails on this property provide access to forests along ME-88 as well as access to the shorefront, including a sand beach, bath house, and pier. 

The 0.6 mile Stonewall Trail, popular with Cumberland Foreside residents, is a wooded path running parallel to ME-88. It extends both north and south of Beach Drive, with the trailhead located between ME-88 and the parking lot.

To the north, the Stonewall Trail connects to the Spears Hill Trail (0.5 miles) which leads to Broad Cove. A loop can be made by continuing back to the parking lot on the Broad Cove Access Trail, a 0.5-mile gravel road with some steep section as it climbs up from the shore, and the most direct access to Broad Cove from the parking lot.

Off the Broad Cove Access Trail (0.3 miles from the parking lot), a 0.3 mown path meanders through and loops around large field.
