Was nice hike with some steep portions. We went in November and didn't see much wildlife, but was great because there were hardly any people. Nice and quite. There are some marshes and some steep hills to clime in some areas and a beautiful view of the ocean at the end/mid-point of the trail. You can add more to the trail by walking down the beach or the small roads for viewing areas. Nice to see conservation/research that is keeping the area protected. Just a side note because we didn't know this before we went....They want everyone to wear something that is hunter orange, since some hunting does take place in this area. Also, we had to cross about 5" of water on one portion in the marsh on the way back because the tide had come in. So if you also plan/don't plan on getting your feet wet (another group had been walking barefoot and in shorts on the beach despite the brisk weather) then I suggest bringing something to get through the water. Luckily I had just bought some new tall hiking boots from Freeport and they were just tall enough to keep my feet dry :)

This hike is mostly on a road with very nice views of forest, marsh, mountain peak and beach.

This is a really nice walk through marsh, woods and onto a Seawall Beach. Beware! The bugs, mosquitoes and Greenheads are fierce!

Easy hike to the cleanest, quietest beach in Maine. Plus there is no charge. They are strict about what you bring in in terms of beach gear (effects families with younger children). Also, bring bug spray, they are pretty bad almost all the time.
