We will start hiking from the parking lot. Bring all weather gear, lunch, binoculars, & nature books.

We will hike in several area of the park. We will be in rocky areas, forest & beaches. This is not a difficult trip, but we will keep moving & there are some steep rocky places. You must feel comfortable going up & down steep portions of the park trails. Please also come properly prepared for winter weather. Bring a lunch. Winter Storm warnings will cancel.

We will be looking at plants, lichen. This is not a great place to look at ducks but you might want to bring your binoculars just in case.
