This short walk leads you through a coniferous forest and bog to the coastal headlands overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way you will be welcomed by several boardwalks and a finally a wonderful bridge to help you over the wettest of areas.
Once you reach the headlands you are treated with the roar of the ocean and an abundance of coastal plant life: Juniper, Purple Iris, and wild beach pea to name a few.
This trail is relatively easy with very little elevation change but watch your footing in the early portions of the trail which are littered with tree roots and stones.
