Description

This wide tree-lined path with very little elevation change travels through fields with views of the Weir River and Damde Meadow Tidal Marsh.

Starting at The Bar, the path climbs very gradually to follow the eastern side of Planters Hill. At 0.3 miles, you'll intersect with Weir River Road. Continue around to your right with views of the Damde Meadow Tidal Marsh to your left.

Shortly after the intersection with Weir River Road, a grass path intersects the trail. To the left, this grass path will lead to a rocky overlook of the marsh. This overlook is a great spot for a quiet picnic. To the right, the grass path leads up Planters Hill to intersect with the Planters Hill Loop.

Continuing along Barnes Road, you may catch sight of wild turkeys in the brush. Another spur to the left leads to a bird blind and observation platform that extends out into the tidal marsh.

After another 0.38 miles, you'll intersect with Brewer Road near the bridge that connects to the parking lot.
