This loop trail winds through the coastal forest of the Weatherwax Preserve and skirts along the edge of Duck Lake, an important wetland ecosystem. This preserve exists because of the efforts of devoted stewards and community members who fought to save it from development. The result is a beautiful forest that is home to an abundance of wildlife and plant life. 

The way is relatively flat so it’s a great spot for families and for young kids to experience the joys of the outdoors. The trailhead has parking for about 6 cars and there are no restrooms.
