The Stonegate Trails provide an extensive network that connects with Fort Williams Park to the north and east, and with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust's Robinson Woods trail network to the south. The trails pass through wooded areas, including streams and wetlands. There are some bridges present, and portions of trail are seasonally wet with moderate grade changes.
This 80-acre woodland, owned by the Town of Cape Elizabeth, does not include the large field and ponds on the south side of Belfield Extension.
This trail passes through a property that was acquired in part with funds from the Land for Maine’s Future program. For more information about the LMF program and the places it has helped to protect, please visit the LMF webpage.

FORT WILLIAMS PARK
The safest off-road location to park is at Fort Williams Park. From the intersection of ME-77 and Shore Road in Cape Elizabeth, follow Shore Road 2.2 miles. The entrance to Fort Williams will be on the right. From South Portland, follow Cottage Road which leaves Broadway and becomes Shore Road at the Cape Elizabeth Town line. From the town line it is 0.9 miles to the entrance to Fort Williams, on the left.
From the Fort Williams parking area, it is about 500 feet to the trailhead, which is located on the opposite site of Shore Road.
DYER ROAD TRAILHEAD
A quarter mile south of the entrance to Fort Williams along Shore Road, turn west onto Dyer Pond Road. The trailhead is about 390 feet down Dyer Pond Road on the right. There is some limited room to park along the road shoulder.
