Overall rating: 

Best trail in Parker River

The longest trail in the refuge. Marsh side of this trail is currently closed for maintenance, likely until July 2019 or later.

Great For Bird Sightings

The whole wildlife refuge in Plum Island is great for walking and bird watching. Nice beaches as well.
