The Plum island National Wildlife Refuge is near the town of Newburyport, and easy enough to find, the parking lot very convenient, and we begun our bike ride from the gate. The road is safe enough for this, there are numerous designated stop/spots with nice views of the marsh, wildlife
such as birds, etc. There is a slight incline towards the island refuge, but easy! We do have to share the road/trail, with cars. There is a longer trail, unpaved, we only used the paved part for the most part, we tried some of the unpaved-gravel trail, it is rough but dusty!
We used the excellent picknic/observation areas for lunch and water breaks, a real treat!
There are many beaches to walk and see the ocean! We sure would like to be back to this island refuge, in the near future!
