Loved the walk out and around as a side trip from our bike adventure on the island. One of the nice parts about biking around the island is the opportunity to get up close to different terrain and scenery.

Tell no one. At the end of a pleasant 1/2 mile walk through some lovely woods is a gorgeous, semi-deserted beach. Sandy not rocky, cool but not cold, waves but not life- threatening... Strap on a beach chair, bring your dog and a soft cooler (and be nice and take your trash out with you when done) and feel like... More

Have been to BI multiple times, but for some reason had never been to Clay Head trail until last week. Better late than never. Gentle sloping sandy trail that rises from remote beach up to bluffs on north east side. Views as good as at Mohegan Bluffs (though admittedly not so high) without the crowds. Family friendly hike. Only challenge... More

This is a must-do hike -- takes you all along the coast in a largely secluded spot with very few other travelers. At the start of the hike, you can go down to the beach, which is pristine. The hike is moderate, some ups and downs but not too strenuous, and has gorgeous outlooks at several points.

We were lucky we met some locals on the ferry over who told us about Clayhead beach. By far the best beach on the island. It is beautiful, the stones, the tide pools, the rocks and birds. The waves were great and there were less than 10 people on the beach at any time, most of the time it was... More

Very nice hike. Paths run along high cliffs over looking ocean and beaches. Maze trails here also. If you enjoy nature.... you'll enjoy this walk.

It's a great trail to hike, with easy access to the beach. If you have a low car, don't try to drive down to the parking area, park on the main road.

Gorgeous views and easy trails. You will see alot of wild life, and the huge expanse of the Atlantic against dune grass and sand is perfect. Great for kids.

Clayhead Nature Trail is also known as "The Maze" or "Bluestone." This is a lovely trail at any time of the year however, in the spring it a knockout! The owners of the land have, over the years, planted tens of thousands (some may even guess hundreds of thousands) of daffodils and narcissus which bloom late into the spring. The... More

We went for a walk and this place is just beautiful! Since it was the Fall, the trees were changing their colors, it was just so peaceful! Great place to go with children (not too young though) and have them enjoy the great outdoors!
