Easy walking trail through the salt marsh on a newly rebuilt boardwalk and on the dirt trail surrounding the area. Great for birdwatching. Great for kids or those with disabilities that may prevent more strenuous hikes. It is not ADA accessible. You will see a variety of wildlife, the beautiful Francis Beach and some plantation ruins.

Great little loop that hits ruins, forest, beach and salt pond - great for birding.

Nice easy trail around a salt pond. There are some ruins that are cool and a boardwalk on the ocean side of the pond.

First to Review

Decent, easy trail. Nice if you’re right there, but don’t go out of your way to do it. It starts on a boardwalk going through a swamp, then it becomes more like a trail. After that, it ascends a small hill, passes some ruins, and ends on the road leading to Francis Bay, which is a great place to swim/snorkel.
