This place is a must-see! Great intermediate hiking, along tidal channels, mud flats, natural forest, and steep, rock-faced ledges.

Pretty scenery, quiet, medium-strenuous hike. No flat areas. A real "walk in the woods". Some water views. Really enjoyed this hike.

Check the tide schedule before you go to maximize the beauty of Ovens Mouth. Parking is free, trails are well marked/traveled.

This was a good stop to do a short very easy hike with nice views. Very flat. We did the east branch, which was just under two miles. We will try the west branch next time, which is suppose to be just under four miles...More

I was misled by the glowing reviews about this hike on Trip Advisor. There were repeated steep ups and downs on the supposedly easy Eastside trail and no benches. My complaint is with the exuberance of the other Trip Advisor reviewers. If I were younger...More

With so many trails to explore, the hiking never gets old. Enjoyed the waterfront paths and bird watching.

The local tourist map is not detailed enough to locate this place and GPS wasn't good either. We persevered and with the the help of a local woman, we found the place. Lovely walking beside the river. Trails are generally easy to navigate. Lots of...More

We hiked both of the trails to take advantage of the scenic views along the peninsula on Back River. The trails were basically forest floor with some rocks and roots - easy hike on both trails. The vistas along the East and West sides offered...More

Two separate trail heads eat ending at the same point. Mostly an out and back hike but could be changed with two cars. Nice to make the end a lunch or snack spot as it's on the water Great views and not a hard hike
