Description

This is a path along the rocky, eastern edge of Hammonasset. It is unblazed, but not difficult to follow. It begins at the pavilion for East Beach and climbs a bit.

After leveling off a bit it leads to a small observation platform overlooking the ocean. It then continues, descending slightly, following the shoreline until it ends at the edge of the Hammonasset Natural Area Preserve.
