  • Walk through the woods to rocky Maine beaches perfect for beach combing. A short little hike to a big adventure. Very kid friendly
  • This is a perfect jaunt down to the water, through a sporadic evergreen forest. No elevation and almost flat the entire way from the parking lot. If your not into long hikes or are with family this is a great hike. Panoramic views without breaking news a sweat.
  • A short trail, but the rocky coastline at the end is quite pretty (even in foggy conditions). Lots of tide pools to explore, though they were pretty empty when I was there in mid-October.
  • It was a nice flat walk with beautiful scenery, not much else than that.
