Used the app to follow trail. Nice walk with dogs

Full disclosure, we just moved to the cape from CO so our perception of hiking is skewed and we only did the first big loop.

Thought the hike could be improved even for the small area it's contained in: River sightings are sparse and fleeting and the east side backs to housing. I certainly would not consider it a "moderate" difficulty trail.

There are a few nice bird sightings and the trail is maintained. Not something I would recommend though.

Would not recommend on a humid day. Deer flies the size of military drones. GPS mapping system was a total bust. The clouds and the above mentioned genetically enhanced deer flies may have caused the interference. Will do again on a clear fall day as it is a nice site....addendum...GPS not a bust...we followed Thorp Trail which is on the west side of the water. That trail is NOT the trail on this app. Long River Trail is the hike covered by the app.

A unique area with many good bird sightings. The trail is through a scrub forest that is hilly and winding along the river. The water is a bit difficult to reach in most places because the banks are steep and thick with branches. The trails are well kept and open onto nice views of the river. Seveal osprey nests are around and must have counted about 18 swans.

A bit tricky to navigate. Will try again!

i started Quinaquisset Parking lot. I followed the long river trail keeping the river in view. Very scenic and trails offer good variety.
