The Roaring Spout, St. George


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: .9 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Atlantic Ocean, islands

The short forested trail to a stunning spot by the ocean is reachable only by foot or bicycle — you can’t drive down the private Roaring Spout Road. Parking spots are not too copious, either. I parked off the side of Harts Neck Road, but there wasn’t much of a pullover.

The walk down Roaring Spout Road is about .7 miles. When the road curves, you’ll see a footpath on your left, shortly after a driveway to a big house. There is a small land trust tacked onto a tree. A few hundred yards down the path, you’ll come to the view. The roaring spout itself is most dramatic during high tide and choppy seas.

The Roaring Spout is located on Roaring Spout Road, which is off of Harts Neck Road in Tenants Harbor.
