Parts of trail impassable by trees. Other areas were trampling through flowers in backyards. Where the trail was clear very nice. Beautiful flowers and great bay views.

This place has the potential to be beautiful if people with dogs took care of it. The ocean near by is gorgeous, the wildflower meadow is host to many species of birds and butterflies but the stench of dog crap wafting on the wind was enough to convince me to never come here again. There is a trash barrel at the entrance and a bag station, yet still, people don't pick up after their dogs. And I have a dog. Once again, the irresponsible ones are there to ruin it for the rest of us.

Meadows and ocean views pretty. But echoing others, lots of ill behaved dogs and obnoxious owners (I love dogs) lots of dog waste, the southern wooded section trails are overgrown and impossible to avoid “bushwhacking” contact w vegetation. Obvious it gets muddy but has been here dry lately....

Half of the trails are muddy and or have a lot of sitting water. Short loop. Nice views of the water. A lot of dog walkers.

WalkingMuddy

Worth it for the stellar view of the bay at the far side of the field. But I’d avoid the wooded trails south of the meadow. Muddy to the point of impassible. Granted, I was walking during a winter thaw so this was expected. But even in warmer weather these paths tend to be wet. And not really woods but more like brush, not much to see. So, stick to the meadow and enjoy the view!

Great location, beautiful views of the bay, plymouth, and miles standish monument. Easy trails thru the field and woods leading to the water perfect for walking the dog, often gets muddy so wear the right shoes.

Running

Started from the Miramar property as we were there doing a marriage encounter retreat. Headed down Bay Road to the main entrance and ran across the field then down to the ocean. The early morning sun was perfect, the mushy trails...not so much! Glad I brought 2 pairs of shoes! Very cool historically, this farm was cleared by some of the earliest settlers back in colonial times. Enjoy.

Love this trail. Has a little bit of everything—meadow, beach, and forest. Muddy after rainy weather and irresponsible dog owners don’t bother to clean up their dog’s business.

Irresponsible dog-owners let their dogs poop anywhere/everywhere so keep a vigilant eye for "landmines" wherever you step. The town supplies baggies for the poo in the parking lot, but even used baggies are left trail-side. The trail is often muddy after precipitation, but sturdy wooden bridges keep you dry for the most part. If you manage to avoid brown shoes, you'll be rewarded with nice meadow trails, forested nooks and a nice vista of Plymouth Bay and the mouth of the Jones River.
