HikingGreat!

It was a beautiful day today, we went this morning and it was quiet and saw tons of wildlife - seals, deer, turkeys, wood packers and turtles. A great mix.

We ended up at short beach on a great walk along the shore. Not what we planned but it was full of awesome shells and rocks small and humongous. Great views of the water and Connecticut!

First time I have been here, beautiful trails, well marked. A drab winter day and the beauty and peaceful atmosphere is soothing. Definitely returning in the other seasons, I’m sure it is filled with color and birds. I did see several deer that were camouflaged in the woods.

Very quiet. Part of the trail disappeared so we ended up walking the roads back. App crashed halfway because there is very little signal here. Very small parking lot (6 numbered spots) fun timE

Very nice short hike, parking is very limited to about 8 cars. Don't park outside, I got a ticket. The view of the beach was the highlight, great for pics.

There’s only 6/7 spots, you will see homes at the Far East and West. Still very beautiful and great view of the ocean.

Only negative is there’s MAYBE 7 spaces, so you have to get lucky. We’re 1 for 2 but it was worth it. Parking luck is rewarded with a nice trail that’s quiet, and has some great views plus a beach as well. This one is suitable for the family.
