At Odiorne Point State Park picnickers can enjoy sweeping views of the ocean and rocky shore, and explorers can uncover evidence of past military occupation. An extensive network of trails wind through the dense vegetation and traverse the park. The Seacoast Science Center, which is located in the park, has exhibits relating to the natural and human history of Odiorne and the seacoast area (separate fee).

I did this hike in May-2016 While I think I would call my hike a meander and walked all over the park. The highlight of this park is that it is the site of the first European settlement in New Hampshire in 1623.

We drove all the way from Boston to hike here because it said it was dog friendly. When we arrived we were informed that dogs weren't allowed anywhere in the park. We went to Urban Forestry Center which was nearby and allowed dogs on leashes and had a great time.

Sadly disappointed. Trails are not marked. Very short and boring. Ocean view is the only positive, but then I could have gotten that without having to pay $4 for a 1.75 mile walk. Not coming back.

This place holds so many memories for my family and I. My Father was stationed here in the forties when it was Fort Dearborn. In the seventies, us teens could get inside the "bunkers" and explore sub basements and everything else. Now I return often to backpack and show my grandkids the place.

This beautiful trail combines great views of the ocean, tide pools, rocky shore and glimpses into the history of the area. It's fairly short and although not well marked, it's still easy to find your way around.

Loved the amount of trails that lead to and around the break water. Our loop ended up being about 3.7 miles, and we didn't even see all of the park.
