From Meigs Point Nature Center—on a knoll overlooking a salt marsh—walk past the center (note the granite monument on the left incised with a trail map) and down the one-lane paved road. Purple-martin apartment houses stand on the left. The roadway is lined with tall common reed (phragmites), bayberry, poison ivy (its white berries are a favorite of many birds), and goldenrod. Soon, reach the picnic area at pavement’s end.
