Wonderful hike for a beautiful Thanksgiving Day with family. It is more like 6 miles if you do the whole loop. A good workout.

It's a great place Great Island. What I didn't expect was the amount of walking in soft sand...'twas a bit draining. Also it it's longer that stated. More like a 6 mile loop.

It had a lot of everything. Groomed hard packed beach trails, marshes, challenging soft sand beaches, narrow forest trails, sun, shade, gentle hills, flat coastal areas, hermit crabs, minnow-filled tide pools, 450-million year old horseshoe crabs, etc. Well marked, but good luck finding the 18th C. Whaler's Tavern. Don't know why it's marked moderate; it's quite easy, and as long as you want it to be.

Very beautiful hike! I did this with a 40lb pack to train for the Lost Coast Trail in California. I went a total of 6.3 miles in 3:34 minutes. The loose sand makes it quite hard to keep your footing. Trekking poles helped a lot!
