Features Birding · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Some of the healthiest insect populations on the island are found here; many hikers will want to use repellents here from mid-May through early July. Because this preserve is surrounded by large tracts of forest land, people or pets who wander off-trail can easily lose their bearings. The blue blazing and tape is the waterline, please do not follow these markings, it is NOT the trail.

Description

One out-and-back with a loop section; total distance about 1.5 miles. The four forest types are marked with signs which describe the different components of each one, with photos. The four forest types are: maritime spruce-fir forest, red maple alluvial swamp, pitch pine woodland, and spruce fir-cinnamon fern forest.

Flora & Fauna

Forested wetlands, pitch pine woodland with giant bonsai-type trees, rare for this forest type.
