This made for the perfect run after it stopped drizzling on this Christmas Eve. I enjoyed stopping to read the historical marker on John Winthrop and the sunset as the sky cleared to the west. I'm definitely coming back for a hike with the family.

Great trek along relatively flat, well marked trail. Terrific scenery. Would be lots of fun on a bike too. Definitely will do this one again.

Easy trail for all purposes - mountain bike, equestrian, run, walk. Good beach just off trail, lots of flora and fauna to see. Great sunset and sunrise vistas.

Great views. Lots of gravel halfway through the main trail. Maybe not suitable for small children or those not completely comfortable on a bike but still a great place to hike or to learn riding on rough terrain. The fire roads to the left of the main trail make for a comfortable ride to fishing areas, about a 2 mile loop.

This is my absolute favorite trail! There are amazing views of the forest, Fisher's island, and Bushy point beach. The trail is very easy, but over 3 miles. The side trails can get very muddy, but it is worth exploring the eastern shore and interior.

This is a great spot for those looking to get into trail running. Clockwise is more difficult at the start, but makes for an easy finish. There are many smaller trails that go around the point, including a small trail on the water at the southern end along the rocks. Trail is wide enough for 3-4 people as well. The area between the loop is a great spot for some easy to moderate mountain biking.I usually run this once a week, adding a loop through the center portion for more elevation gain, and added distance.
