This is a great short hike on easy terrain. If you're in the area, come out and enjoy this park. You can make the trip as log as you want. You can even enjoy some geocaching.

This is a beautiful area to hike. It's nice to see what the area used to look like before the area was over populated. It's an easy walk with minimal elevation changes. There's a nice variety of trails that go from out along the edge of the bay and back into the woods. The wildlife and birds are great. Definitely watch for ticks, but luckily the trails are wide enough so you aren't into brush. I've been out here several times over the years, always beautiful.

I started on a nice casual walk and then I was attacked by green heads....wound up running the whole damn trail just to survive.....absolutely horrible

It was a nice, easy hike to the water front. Today s little muddy and snowy. Not strenuous at all and still a lot of damage from Sandy- nature center and some trails closed.

Short, easy trail. Nice views of the bay at the end of the road. Multiple osprey nesting sites would make spring/summer an interesting time. Not worth the time if you are looking for something strenuous. The amount of litter on the trail was significant. I give the trail two out of four garbage pails.
