This sprawling, flat, sandy park is a typical Massachusetts coastal forest, filled with deer, pheasants, and freshwater fish, and surrounded by nearby cranberry farms. The hike offers a tour of this sand-plain ecosystem, with sandy soil, scrub oak, white pine, and thick laurel undergrowth. Unfortunately, it is also a favorite of dirt bike riders, but this loop sticks to a part of the forest largely avoided by motorized vehicles.

Rocky trails, very buggy, and no views. There has been a bit of timbering in the area, and some of the trail markings are no longer there. Thanks to my GPS for getting me home in one piece; I won't go there again.
