I took a fast walk the entire trail in and out no extreme mountains, relatively flat, hiked before winter snow, real nice trail. I will return many more times, Jim Raymond.

Easy walk.

Loved the trail, plenty to see and also secluded.

It was a nice short trail. Our dog loved it!! Nice walking by the water!

Very easy family oriented walk/hike, accessing a small beach and picnic area with view of the bay. Dog friendly, but leash is required if hiking after 10AM.
Due to the proximity of to the bay, it can become icy and hard to walk on during winter after some snowy/rainy conditions. Use appropriate walking gear.
Lots of dogs roaming and playing before 10AM.

I was stationed here in the 80s and its always kept its beauty. A wonderful trail that affords very rare photos if you sit still for a few minutes and let the tide of nature rise back up all around you. Also the perfect skill level for grandkids.

This would have been a nice nature walk if it weren't for the bugs. My wife and I both sprayed our exposed skin with bug spray but at the end of the day I had over 30 bites through my shirt.

Beautiful. Lots of trail options, not a lot of people crowding them.

Hidden gem in the Seacoast

Best casual walk around the area. ❤️

By far my favorite walk around here. There's a trail along the bay and a trail cut through the fields. Extremely well maintained. My dog loves playing in the water, and all the other dogs and walkers are very nice. Never had an issue here, and I go often. Only downside is it can be busy depending when you go, but never overwhelming.

A beautiful place. A nice loop through varied terrain along great bay. Beautiful views and a nice breeze even on hot days. In early August there's a bumper crop of wild blackberries.

The only downside is poison ivy growth that can only be described as an infestation.

The trail is well maintained and marked. Friendly for kids and dogs. There are also spots where you can stop to get a decent view of the bay, or launch a canoe. All in all a good trail.

attempted to do the East section. A lot of ticks and bugs. I actually turned around, went back to the car and went someplace else. Maybe West Foss is better???

Great walk. Better knows as "Wagon Hill". A variety of well marked trails (Ie - wild rabbit, birds, monarch butterflies and of course - the trail around the lake). Nice views. Plenty of parking. Kid friendly, dog friendly (most on leashes - thank you!). The only con - highly populated.

A fun little hike. Easy/Moderate terrain. Great views if you stay on the main trail. Beautiful views of the Great Bay. The only downfalls - parking is VERY limited and the dogs are almost all off leash.
