Didn't make it too far down the bath, but it's fun to go exploring on the rocky beach. Could make for a good sunset.

Nice paved path with views of the Rich Passage. Great place for a picnic. TONS of blackberries to pick - bring a container!

Well maintained level walking trail along water inlet. Dog friendly on leach. Not advertised on through streets in Bainbridge but you can locate on web search. A little parking available and a place to put small boat in water. Nice quiet shaded walk along water.
