Beautiful trail! I wish it were longer, because it’s a great combo of interesting terrain but not too hard for a casual walk.

Loved this trail, great for all. Drop offs in some areas so be mindful of little kids and running. Views are great.

Lots of poison ivy and active bees/wasps. Beautiful views of the bay. Kids loved taking several “breaks” to skip and chuck rocks into the ocean.

Flat trail, lots of beautiful views of the bay, I come here all the time but I’m surprised it’s listed as moderate, this trail is really short and really easy. Still worth the walk though, I always run into some kind of awesome wildlife or wildflowers.

beautiful walk in the woods with my son and our dog. We spent some time along the shore line as well.

This is a flat trail. There is a lot of access to the shore of Great Bay. It took us about an hour taking our time. We stopped at the shore for a little bit.

Love this trail! I took my dog and he loved being able to play in the water. There are several points on the trail to make your way over to the water which is nice. We’re definitely going back.

A beautiful place. A nice loop through varied terrain along great bay. Beautiful views and a nice breeze even on hot days. In early August there's a bumper crop of wild blackberries. The only downside is poison ivy growth that can only be described as an infestation.

The trail is well maintained and marked. Friendly for kids and dogs. There are also spots where you can stop to get a decent view of the bay, or launch a canoe. All in all a good trail.

A fun little hike. Easy/Moderate terrain. Great views if you stay on the main trail. Beautiful views of the Great Bay. The only downfalls - parking is VERY limited and the dogs are almost all off leash.

I wouldn't call this a hike. Easy walk for all levels. There is only one section that has some uneven terrain. Really beautiful walk with different vantage points of the bay. Very little parking. Some spots initially at kayak launch, then a few spots by research center. Essentially a one way road in and out with no room to park on the side.

I went snowshoeing here last winter and loved it; I'll definitely be returning this winter, too. The views of Great Bay are excellent, often with swans, geese or ducks paddling around in the still water. Look for deer prints in the snow and take care on the ledges overlooking the ocean, which are usually icy, even when covered in snow. Also, although I have never seen them, my friends claim you can see bald eagles nesting in the trees along the ledges in the winter.

My girlfriend and I love this trail. We've been several times and plan on returning.
