Tour de Beaches

This marvelous 16.2 mile loop takes in four lighthouses (Bug Light, Spring Point Light, Portland Head Light and Two Lights) and four beaches (SMCC, Willard, Two Lights and Crescent). While the loop can easily be done in a few hours by most cyclists, you’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to explore. Please note that if you plan on entering Two Lights State Park or Crescent Beach State Park, you will need to pay a fee.

The Route

This loop utilizes the Greenbelt Walkway for stops at Bug Light and nearby Spring Point Light, then takes you along Cape Elizabeth’s Shore Road for a stop at Fort Williams (a great spot for lunch). A pleasant ride on Rt 77 (wide shoulders make cycling enjoyable along this stretch) lets you take a side trip to Two Lights State Park or continue on Rt 77 to Crescent Beach State Park (shown above). A pleasant ride on Spurwink Ave, then Rt 77 takes you back to your starting point.
