Four miles long from Longmarsh Road in Durham to the Great Bay Estuary in Newmarket, the Sweet Trail leads hikers by a remarkable array of upland forests, freshwater wetlands and tidal salt marsh. The Sweet Trail winds its way from second generation forests to Great Bay, a unique estuarine ecosystem of local, regional, and national significance. The estuary provides a rich aquatic habitat that supports more than 150 rare plant and animal species, and 55 exemplary natural communities.

This would have been a nice nature walk if it weren't for the bugs. My wife and I both sprayed our exposed skin with bug spray but at the end of the day I had over 30 bites through my shirt.
