Trail Guide   

The Refuge offers a long, loop trail from a small information center building, past abandoned, industrial-looking military structures and security fencing, into the woods and eventually out along the Great Bay shoreline and then back to the parking area.

Watch out for ticks! This provides an hour's walk at a leisurely pace.
