Park in Noanet Woodlands parking area off Powisset Street in Dover. The trailhead and initial trails are in Noanet but then you cross over into the Hale Reservation where the bulk of the hike is located. Continue up and over Strawberry Hill then down to the beach at Powisset Pond via the Strawberry Hill Trail. Continue up and around then down to the road which takes you back to the parking area. Plenty of alternate ways to do this one. Show more
