Easy to find and park, but not well marked. The trail is on the opposite side of the road from the museum. The trail is not heavily used and is somewhat overgrown in places. There are green arrows guiding you but either I missed one or it had fallen off and I ended up on a side trail and got all turned around. The C.C.C. Trail is what I ended up on, it shows up as a road on AllTrails. It was confusing to say the least. The Shaker trail is heavily canopied. There are small streams and little under growth. I did not see any wild animals, but the sound of singing birds and lack of motor sounds was relaxing and peaceful. I saw all of 3 people on the trail, so I felt quite alone in the woods.

great for viewing seabirds, turtle nesting. beautiful views.

Hiked this today- great hike with some parts being more access-road-like and others being wooded trails. Part of the trail is the Rock Circuit trail which can be lots of rock climbing up/down which was difficult for a beginner like me, but a good challenge.

Nice well marked trail. The dog and I loved it ! The only thing is it's a little too close to the road so make sure you have a leash if you are bringing your dog.

Lots of fun. The climb was great. A wonderful time. We explored a little off trail, found some nice places.
