      The Cross Hills Area includes several separate smaller trail Networks. To the North is Winnick Woods which connects to Dyer Hutchinson Farm to the southwest and Cross Hill Trails, Leighton Farms and Spurwink further to the south.

      The 71 acre Winnick Woods parcel is owned by the Town of Cape Elizabeth and was donated to the Town for preservation and includes extensive woodlands, wetlands, a pond and a meadow. Grades on the trails can be steep and bridges and boardwalks have been constructed.

      The Dyer - Hutchinson parcel is owned by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. The trail begins in a wooded and wetland area and rises to the top of an open field before continuing into the woods. Grades are moderate. This trail intersects with the town-owned Winnick Woods to the north and connects to the Cross Hill Trails.

      The Cross Hill Trails are owned by the Town of Cape Elizabeth. The trails are predominantly wooded with both moderate and steep slopes, with at least one bridge crossing a wetland area. The trail system
      connects to the Winnick Woods and Leighton Farms trails in the north.

      The Spurwink trail property is owned by the Town of Cape Elizabeth. This trail follows the edge of the Town Farm field, winds through a wooded area adjacent to Pollack Brook. Grades are gentle to moderate. Portions of the trail adjacent to Riverside Cemetery are seasonally wet. The southern end of the trail opens up to a view of the Spurwink Marsh.

      The Runaway Farm trail winds through forested wetland, with moderate grade changes. This is a self-contained loop trail, a portion of which can be difficult to negotiate when wet.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
