What a gem! This short, 2.6-mile loop is well-marked with white blazes and good signage, and the trail itself is very well-maintained. There are tree roots crossing the trail, but they're easily avoidable/navigable. The "fairy houses" were adorable and would make a great attraction for...More

Nice easy little hike beautiful and varied views, from marshes to tidal inlet to overlooks. Mostly flat through the woods and along the shore, short section of relatively steep climb up to the “cliff”.

Nice, shady, trail. Not a strenuous hike but beware of the exposed tree roots. The path is a soft, cushioned with organic materials and well marked with blazes. Along the path a couple places are designated fairy house areas. Feel free to construct a fairy...More

Enjoyable hike of varying terraines and fantastic views. Saw a bald eagle, herons and egrets. A lot of exposed roots so care needs to be taken.

I found this to be a good hike to get the heart pumping. Easy walking if your watching out for the roots. The cliff side... just like the signs say, keep the small children & animals back from the edge. Neat to be walking through...More

You and the little one would have no problem. There is one section where you walk along a cliff. The trail is not on the edge and there are signets alert you. Enjoy
