After some hesitation at the prospect of mosquitos, we decided to visit both this property and Rachel Carson. The latter is a short but well-organized trail and a very nice place to visit. However, my husband and I, both hikers, really loved the Estuarine Reserve. The mosquitos were not particularly bad when we visited (late August) but we had bug spray on hand. I used it but my husband preferred not to and he only got a couple of bites after being there for several hours. The Reserve is very good hiking because it is crisscrossed with well-marked trails (good accurate maps are available) that stretch across an interesting diversity of habitats. One of the main trails leads to the barrier beach, which was beautiful and deserted except for a few fellow walkers. Other trails led to the estuarine areas, forests, pastureland, and orchards. We were there for several hours and had a picnic lunch there. There are bathrooms and sinks, so it's reasonably well appointed for a hiking site. Not that everyone there was hiking, but the walks were clearly the best part of the reserve. Will go back if we are in the area again. Would love to see it in another season. Highly recommend.
