The trail starts in a maritime forest. It's a short wooded trail that leads to an excellent swimming area. It has also cool historic sites along the route. Access to the little beach is nice. If you're driving, there is no parking at the trailhead as it's all private parking, there are plenty of bike racks. There is a church less than 1/2 mile down the road that offers parking (by donation).Show more
