A short walk through the woods and you come to a nice little beach. It's a great spot to watch the sunset. This is a pretty well traveled path, however, we saw a snake near the path, so it pays to be aware of your...More

This is a short nature trail that leads to a pretty soundside beach. There are some interpretative signs put up by the conservation land trust that owns (or manages) the property. Bug spray is warranted. While the walk is nice, if you are looking for...More
