Easy, nice hike on a dirt road that lets out on a stunning sandy beach. Definitely take the time to do the view point!

The trail is partially paved, very easy to navigate. I hike it with my 3 children (9,6, 1.5) my youngest is on my back. Two big inclines (each way) make for a good work out. Lots of places to climb and explore on the way to the beach and the summit! We love the beach, no where to go to the bathroom though if you can't stand up and pee!

The trail is easy but the length may limit some people - especially small children. The beach at the end of the trail has entirely different looks depending on the tide. When there at low tide you can walk way out in the bay and get a unique perspective. It can be very busy. That is the main reason for only 3 stars from me.

Beautiful trail that we take our boys (3, 6 and 7 years) on. A little much for our 3 year old, but we love the beach at the end of the trail. Very rewarding!

This hike offers so much variety. Over the course of a few miles, you hike across a salt marsh, along large rock ledges, through conifers, up over a small mountain (which you can optionally bypass). From this open vantage point you can look down to the saltmarsh you crossed, out to open ocean. On a clear day you see the White Mountains. The beach itself feels almost like it is your own. Think about it, with a 40 car maximum, you're sharing a pretty large beach with maybe 80 people on a peak summer day. Other times I've been there and seen maybe a dozen people. Plus, because of the effort to get there, people aren't set up with tons of gear. I suspect the people you see are outdoorsy and environmentally conscious people who care about this preserve. If you love the beach, but not so much the crowds, noise and hubbub, this is an amazing spot!

Love this hike. It's overall an easy hike with a few steeper inclines. The trail itself is predominantly a rough tarred road with some hard packed dirt sections. The overlook at the summit is beautiful on a clear day as you view marsh tributaries down to the ocean. The beach at the end can be walked all the way to Popham Beach but beware of high tide as it can cut you off from a return. The main trail also can be overrun when the tide comes in though it can still be passed. Best to check the tide schedule before the trip. The parking lot holds about 30-40 cars. They will turn you away on busy days. The attendant on Friday said he turned at least 80 cars away the prior Sunday so plan to arrive early on nice summer days. Excellent easy trail for a family. No pets and no facilities so carry in/carry out.
