It's a peaceful walk and a beautiful place to take pictures.

This is a great walk for sightseeing, but it tends to be fairly crowded, particularly in the warmer months. I don't take my dogs when I do this one, and I wouldn't really call this a trail since it is a good portion of it is the sidewalk that runs along the waterfront in downtown Plymouth. The map shows it starting at Nelson Street Beach down past Plymouth Rock, but make sure not to miss the short bike trail that heads the other way up toward Kingston for about a mile with public beach access and a gorgeous Trustees of the Reservation Oceanside cliff with spectacular views. On a clear day, you can see Provincetown. The scenery is breathtaking and there is a great jetty you can walk all the way out on behind the East Bay Grill. There are public restrooms near the Plymouth Rock monument and plenty of restaurants and gift shops along the route. In the summer, parking can be tricky in the public lot at Nelson Street. If you start at the top of the bike trail a mile off of Hedge Road, there is more parking.

my favorite spot in manomet. peaceful walk to a twisty downhill decent to the beach. follow the beach to the right and it leads to a trail alongside a marsh that loops back to the trail head.

Our favorite place to hike with kids and a dog. In the wooded area, and then by the water. Just beautiful.

Love this quaint little walking trail. Surprised it's a 1.5 mile in. Seems much shorter. At end of trail u come to the ocean. If you're lucky you'll see seals on the rocks or bobbing their heads up and down out in the water. Very rocky shoreline. Great place for kids to collect rocks and build cairns. Even better is the "take a rock ... Leave a rock". Won't explain that. You'll have to go to experience it first hand. Especially if u r missing a loved one ❤️

Nice short hike! Watch out for poison ivy though!!

This is a moderate walk and great exercise. I love the reward of the ocean at the end of the hike. Just gorgeous!

Very nice views and nicely packed down path. Tons of really healthy poison ivy along the path so watch out!

Probably is a nice trail but we didn't get very far before we were covered in ticks and had to turn around. People weren't kidding about the ticks, they are bad!

Very nice hike with my 9 year old
