The first 0.3 miles of the trail travel through the woods and across two hand-built footbridges over Ott Stream, a perennial stream that is rust colored due to the tannic and humic acids from a wetland upstream. The trail then comes to a junction with a loop. Just past the junction to the left is a lime kiln chimney cap, a relic of Rockport Harbor’s lime kilns. Circling around the loop in a clockwise direction, the trail reaches the shore after about 0.2 miles. A stone chair sits along the trail by the shore, from which to take in views of Rockport Harbor. Returning back along the same 0.3 mile trail from the loop makes for a total hiking distance of 1 mile.
