Picking your time to do this hike is key as the trail runs through salt marshes and the Greenhead Flies can end your hike extremely quick with their painfull bite. Try to avoid mid July - mid August. Good views out to the ocean from the atop of the hill which make for a great place to have lunch. I wish there was more trail but a good hike for family.
Knowing where to park was the only confusing part of this trail. The old parking area closer to Route 1A is still used but not recommended (No lot). The other lot to the west is ample. The trail to Old Town Hill starts across the road from the preferred parking area just to the west. Easy grades with extensive views of the surrounding towns and Atlantic Ocean. Descent to the old parking area is quite steep but relatively short. The trail to the edge of the marsh river is great for kids and pets. Watch out for the muddy areas.
