“Interesting ecology”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a pleasant stroll thru varying topography. Bear in mind you and your kids need to stay on the trail because the woods and swamp are tick infested. Also no dogs are allowed, even on leash. Still it's a fascinating and lovely walk.

Great trail. Very nice walk for all ages. Always a fun feature is the boardwalk through the marsh, very cool. 1 mile walk.

“Senic”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This walk has breath taking vews of the ocean and iner waterways. The swamp is ofen closed due to dear ticks but that is not the main attraction here, It's the water.

“a cool place on a hot day”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a really lovely place - the micro climate is so unusual and the walk is wonderful. Changes for every season. Nice and cool on a hot summer day.

“A beautiful walk”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This is a non-strenuous (but there is a decent hill and roots/rocks, so not for those who don't care for the woods) walk through the woods and swamp that is quiet and truly lovely. The ecosystem is unique and the boardwalk-type hike around the swamp is very enjoyable. Tucked down in the woods the wind was minimal on the cold but sunny day that we visited.
