Beautiful but very buggy. Had to cut the walk short. Will be back in the fall.

Has amazing views but majority of the hike is in high grass. If you wanna go for the view just do 20 minutes of it

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
