The Lyman Reserve is a small wooded area on the banks of Red Brook near its outlet to Buttermilk Bay, including a small sandy beach. It was a 19th century fishing camp so the small network of trails mainly follow the banks of the brook.

I was expecting a slightly more difficult hike for some reason. It was beautiful and easy. My dog loved the water ways and running on the beach. It was short but it wore out our pup

Kind of a short trail but was great for us beginners. Will definitely return as it is very close to home and had nice view of the bay.

Really enjoyed these easy and open trails. Both sides were open and diverse. Great place for family hike. Plan to return to hike and picnic along water's edge.

We took our dog here to try new places, the paths are clean & clearly marked with not too many obstacles. Easy walking area.

Fishing is for native Salters. You need to hunt for these fish; don't expect to catch a lot but the more you explore the more you learn. It is possible to catch a true Salter in the 2-3lb range: I've seen and done it but most bookies are small 4-7 inches. Presentation seems more important than fly selection. I do like small streamers close to and in the estuary.
