This very easy trail along an old road brings you to pink granite outcrops along the shore and tide pools at low tide. You may see skunk cabbage along the way and wonder why there are broken mussel shells inland along the trail rather than on the coastline. Once you see the smooth pink granite along the shore, smell the salty sea, and explore the tide pools, you will know why they call this Wonderland. The very easy trail along an old gravel road starts by winding through dark woods, but a huge smooth pink granite rock on the left soon hints at the show to come.

Wonderland Trail is a very bland walk to the ocean. If you are looking for a quick, easy hike with great views I would recommend Ship Harbor just down the road.
