  • Great park with a lovely area for a hike. Problem is the infestation of Lyme ticks. We only go when the ground is frozen and ticks are dormant. Hike in the winter. Or beware. 
  • Looking for a 3 to 4 mile walk with a nice view at the end and nice wide walking path along nature. Very nice park with several trails - good for dogs, biking, with picnic tables and benches along the...  more »

  • Decent place to go hiking by the ocean. Great ocean views. Well maintained and well-marked trails. I visited in the winter and there were still quite a few people out there. The trails a very easy without much elevation. I do prefer trails with some decent elevation though.
  • It's a nice place for a relaxing walk or a picnic with friends and family. There are benches and tables so you can set things up very easily. It's a great place for trail running and mountain biking. The place is not too crowded so it's a plus. The parking lot and the road leading to it from the main road is not paved and full of gravel so the ride is bumpy. The park has no paved roads for road biking.
  • All year round go hiking swimming camping just beautiful AdFree
  • Beautiful walks along the water and popular fishing spots. The whole walk is a couple of miles long and offers great views of the point and the sound.
  • Three main walks available - full woods, edge of woods, and shoreline (just not at high tide). Swimming (no lifeguard), clamming, crabbing, picnic area, beautiful river and ocean views. Pets and horses allowed.
