This should not be rated as moderate, it should be easy! I walked this today, the trails are wide enough to drive a truck down, flat and beautifully maintained. It could be a long hike if you walk the whole thing, theres a couple of short side trails. Really nice scenery, wild life and ocean breezes, there's even a pretty decent outhouse in the lower parking lot to boot.

Nice easy stroll through a wildlife sanctuary that was once a military air base that has since grown in. A lot of low shrubs with some sporadic hardwoods and nice views of Ninigret pond.

Very beautiful trails. Great for birders!! I saw my first upland sandpiper here as well as many gold finch, TONS of catbirds, osprey, towhees, red winged black birds- just to name a few. This is a nice easy hike to bring the kids on and there are little access points that bring you right to the water. I can imagine it'd be great for trail running (I'm not a runner, myself but there arnt many obstacles in the way, it's fairly flat and there is tons of room). Happy Trails! Daisy
