A stunner! This is a wonderful short walk (about .8 miles one way) by a little beach and then along the Little River to the ocean’s edge where you have views of Goose Rocks Beach and Timber Island (which you can walk out to at low tide, evidently). This is a Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, and no dogs are allowed. Part of the trail seems okay for wheelchairs, but check it out first. There is a wet part at the end that might be hard going (with boards).
Directions: There is limited parking. From Pool Street (Route 9), take Granite Point Road to the very end, about 1.5 miles. You’ll see a kiosk and room for several cars.
