    Nice, easy and interesting walk

    This was perfect for our Frenchie, although there are signs that dogs aren’t allowed on the beach/swimming area.

    Amazing area to hike!

    Burr pond is rich in history and wildlife. Take your dog hiking around the pond, and it'll take you about an hour. I love this trail and I take my dog on it any chance I get.

    Many people are walking the trail as well, a lot with off leash dogs (Even though it's supposed to be on-leash area.) So it's your call, but I suggest only letting your dog off leash if its recall is 110%.

    There's also a beach + small picnic area. Enjoy! It's my favorite place to be (:
