Shackford Head Trail

Shackford Head Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Shackford Head abounds with seals bobbing in the rapidly changing tides, bald eagles soaring in the salt breezes, and thick carpets of wildflowers flourishing in the moist air. In addition to natural beauty, the rocky location also offers a glimpse into the region’s human history, recent and distant.

With working waterfronts and towering church steeples on the horizon, Shackford Head is surrounded by the very communities that shaped the political philosophy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the most influential president of the twentieth century."
