This short out-and-back trail brings hikers to a dramatic cliff overlooking Wilson’s Cove. The views up and down Middle Bay and across to Birch Island are spectacular. The end of the trail provides a quiet place to sit beneath the red oaks and take in the water, land and sky. On a still day, the reflection along the shore shimmers on the water and the retreating tide reveals seaweed-covered rocks for roosting gulls and cormorants. The Wilson’s Cove Trail is on privately owned land that is protected forever by a conservation easement.
