An quick-and-easy hike even when it’s-10 today. Although it’s not a loop trail, we made it a loop by coming out from the other side and walk into the community neighborhood and then back to the parking lot. Ideal for a winter hike in the sun!

Easy gravel trail that is very level and good for walking, running, biking. Beautiful views of the salt marsh. Can be breezy and cool during cooler months. Lots of different birds in the area.

Nice and easy out and back trail with beautiful scenery. You can really see how quickly the tide moves when standing on the bridges.

Trail is beautiful to walk, run or bike. I have biked the whole thing all the way to Lawrence town beach and back and it’s breath taking. Also a very nice place to walk your dogs or run!

Good day for a bike ride on Salt Marsh Trail. Dry trail and not much people at 5:00. Got a bit buggy at the end around 5:30-6:00. Good trail overall. Recommend it.

I really enjoyed this one. It was a gentle easy stroll or walk at a fast pace if you want. A lot of people so it can get busy but the views can be beautiful and places to sit if you want to have a rest. Coming back the same way isn’t as much fun but I still saw lots of birds and the sun reflecting differently on the water. It is a well maintained flat surface.

Very easy trail with lots of spots to sit by the water. Nice place to take a walk after work or when you only want a short walk. Great running trail as well with fairly flat wide paths.

Once again, this app stops. I will not be renewing my paid subscription.

Added a loop to make it near 5km.

Once again, app repeatedly stops.

Excellent for hiking or biking. In extreme weather or hot and cold you experience the feeling of being all by yourself.

Lovely park and trails. Very busy based on no spots left at parking lot. However park is big enough that once on the trails it doesnt seem busy at all.
