An absolutely gorgeous place to walk and bird but I have never seen such a concentration of wood ticks anywhere. We probably picked 50 off of our small dog and a few off of ourselves. If it weren't for these critters, I would rate as 5 stars and return many times. Cool cemetery and interesting history (farmsite that helped 18th-century slave win his freedom, as well as a bombing target range in the 1940s).

Beautiful easy walk through the trees and then by the salt marshes with the Ospreys and Egrets
