Length: 1.9 mi • Est. 49 m
The hike starts with a stroll past an old secure military area with a sign stating 'Former Weapons Storage Facility'. It then follows an old path down into a lovely broad field and eventually reaches Great Bay. There you will find an observation platform for view the bay. The road is well maintained. It can be slightly muddy after a rain. Please note: Bikes and dogs are not allowed.Show more

This boardwalk trail, which is fully wheelchair accessible, begins at the southeast corner of the parking lot. After passing through a beautiful forested area, the trail continues to a wildlife observation blind at the edge of Upper Peverly Pond. From there, the trail loops back to the parking lot after meandering by several (seasonally wet) vernal pools.Show more
