Very easy , good for quick walk .
easy to find with a nice view of the water. good for a jog if you circle it twice.
nice trail but extremely simple.
This is a great trail that my family and I use frequently. It can be a bit buggy, so be sure to bring bug spray for the mosquitoes and black flies and check for ticks after you finish the loop. on many occasions, we have seen great blue herons and snowy egrets in the tall grass that lines the trail, especially near the pond to the left of the trail after the old air force base section.
An easy two mile walk with great scenic views.
This is a very easy hike that I would highly recommend to families. Essentially, it is a very nice walk through some very beautiful natural areas until you come to the picturesque Great Bay.
This is a VERY pretty trail that takes you from behind the old air force base to the great bay. It's a short easy hike through the woods, some local wildlife, and soon the old bomb storage area will be reclaimed and will likely be even more pretty. Bring your DEET, there are some Mosquitos and black flies when the flood ponds form, but it was pretty minimal.
A nice two mile walk on well marked trail. White tail deer and turkeys may keep you company on your walk.
A nice walk out to a marsh and the bay.
