The wooden posted sign to this trail is small, old and worn-looking. The parking area is a small grassy spot for just two cars. The trail is unblazed and at least in the beginning, is just a narrow track through overgrown grass and weeds (in July, 2017). Yet, once you get to the woods, the path becomes easier to follow and walk, though there appear to be persistent muddy patches. If you take the path down to the shore — about a mile — you will come out on a spectacular sandy beach, which you might have to yourself. It is a good place for a cold swim!
Directions: The trailhead is off Route 191 (Dixie Road), about 1.8 miles south of Boot Cove Road on the right, if you’re coming from the north. The sign is small, on a wooden post, just a little ways past Haycock Harbor Road and Havenhurst Road.
