The trail through the Martin Point Preserve first passes Crystal Pond—a picture-perfect freshwater pond surrounded by forest within sight of the ocean. A short walk along its shore leads to a beaver lodge. The trail crosses Martin Point, heading west through a carpet of pine needles beneath mature pines. The trail drops down to within sight of Muscongus Bay before climbing past the granite outcropping known as Judy’s Ledges. The hike follows an abandoned woods road back to the trailhead.

Limited off street parking at the head of the trail. The trail is close with plants but parts open up once into the tree areas. Fairy houses dot the landscape which was a wonderful surprise. Bring your bug spray- especially near the pond. There is a table and chairs near the pond if you are looking for a place to rest and maybe have lunch/snack.
