You can see a lot of history on this walk. Explore two relics of history, the 4,000-year-old Sewee Shell Ring and a 600-year-old clam shell midden, both vestiges of previous cultures. The shell ring is considered ceremonial, while the clam midden is from harvesting nearby tidal waters for food. The loop hike also travels through tall woods, along a salt marsh and by rare shell mound vegetation.
