Parking is tricky in the summer, but walking through the woods with views of splendid Quissett Harbor and finally standing on the end of the peninsula looking at Buzzards Bay are wonderful. There's also a small, sandy beach to the right of one's walk out to The Knob.

Only a few minutes walk from the car park on Quissett Harbour, but most enjoyable, with some small animals visible along the way and also a number of flowers and shrubs.
Eventually one comes out on the small stone causeway out to the Knob, where again we saw some small wild animals. The sound of the sea lapping on the rocks was very restful and we sat on the stone benches on the Knob for a little while, before walking back again!
A short but very pleasant interlude!

Overall this was a nice place to visit with some nice trails and views, but really it was just nice, not great. The really great thing about it is that it is dog friendly.
