Situated on 41 acres of spectacular scenic land, Two Lights State Park is a great find for tourists and a favorite haunt for the locals. Here you will find rocky headlands, granite ledges, and ocean trails.

A short hike or bike ride along the trails will take you through wild sea roses, sumacs, and bayberries. All of the plants provide a home for a variety of songbirds. There are secluded wooded areas for quiet contemplation. Originally named for the two 1828 lighthouses located in the area, Two Lights State Park is an excellent location to hike a trail above the crashing surf where you can enjoy vistas of Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. High on a hill, you can view boats sailing in and out of Portland Harbor, view lobster fisherman hauling in their traps or simple enjoy the sea breeze in on your face.

One of the two lighthouses is still operational but not accessible to the public. The other lighthouse has become a private residence.

Two Lights State Park is open year round from 9:00 am to sunset. The park is not open during inclement weather.
