Mainly sandy paths with varying levels of stability underfoot, there is only a sign with some photos for the tavern. Lots of birds around and even more crabs. The walk back north along the beach without shoes was the highlight, only saw about 10 other people the whole time. Highly recommended. Ended up being 11.5km at 2h45m moving time.

Amazing hike like no other. The views are spectacular. Go at low tide or you won’t get through. The breakwater rocks need to be respected! Some are quite slippery even with hiking boots on. ( I took a major digger). The portion of the hike that’s on the beach is deep sand. So worth it to see the lighthouses, horseshoe crabs, seals, birds....

Walked the trail on a sunny spring morning and the emerging beech leaves were a bright green against the blue sky. Encountered a very friendly nuthatch and red squirrel on the boardwalk by the pond’s edge. Don’t miss the short detour off to the right at the end of the loop (if walked in a counter-clockwise direction) which takes you to a dock where you will find pretty pond views.

Awesome area... amazing to hike the jetty in and back at different tide levels so pack a picnic to enjoy on beach and plenty of water as there is no shade. There is now a section that ropes off a portion of the interior vegetation for shore birds nesting protection etc so stick with exploring around the outer edge. Definitely keep dogs on a leash as the area coyote has been super active lately.. even followed a fisherman down the beach before wandering off as not afraid of humans.. not a good place to have your dog run into those sorts of troubles. Hiking this route in covid era is awkward at best.. there really is no way to keep much passing distance for the mile long jetty and most walkers are not bothering to wear a mask or even feign covering of their faces in the congested zones. We began our day early and had fewer hikers.. by the time we were leaving hours later there was a constant flow of people coming across though most do the jetty and leave the rest open for longer hikers peace and quiet.

Incredible views !

Pets are not allowed. Beautiful ocean overlooks and well marked. Moderately hilly but trail is well cared for with steps. Kids enjoyed the varied walk through the dunes to the ocean and the vegetation to the Bog House.

A very beautiful and memorable trail up and down sand dunes. Kids under 11 will likely be worn out, thirsty and hot, but worth it. Hidden artist shacks are along the way and the ocean is at the end.

Perfect dune and beach walk. Takes a little longer than you might guess, and is hot in summer. You can swim at the end if you want to brave the sharks.

This is a beautiful walk. Make sure you allow enough time, bring food and water, sunscreen, etc. Walking on the beach section is taxing and slow but the whole trail is very scenic.

Gorgeous easy trail. Highly recommend.

Got a little lost on the cross to the path behind Penniman house but the rest of the trail was well labeled with nice views

Looks like a desert. It has some spectacular views. The hike to the ocean is a bit exhausting but well worth it. Not many people on the trails as of yesterday.

Beautiful weather yesterday. A nice hike to feel like your at the edge of the world. Well worth the walk.

One of the most unique hikes I’ve ever taken. It was a blast hoping all over the rocks to the point and back. Wonderful sunset views and gorgeous lighthouse. Want to go back and see the other lighthouse, unfortunately ran out of light before doing so. Two tips: observe the high tide times, and keep an eye on the wet rocks, they can be slippery and potentially dangerous.

Such a fun and challenging trail! The views are so beautiful and the mix of woods, dunes, marshes, and ocean you get to see everything. I did a challenging route (8 miles)/ got a little turned around in the marsh. Make sure you bring snacks, water, and a full charged phone for photos :)

Sandy awesomeness. Dunes to the beach no shoes necessary unless in the hot summer days

Beautiful sunny day Auralie taught me where the sharpening stone was. I never knew.
