Tusket River estuary, barrier beach ponds, eel grass mud flats, coastal marshes, sandy 
and rocky shores, growths of sea plants, the Tusket Islands, a tree harvest area and a 
Christmas tree farm.  
The trail also provides opportunities to view a variety of wildlife. Great Black Backed  
and Herring Gulls, Terns, Red Squirrel and a variety of song birds to name a few. The  
trail provides a number of access points with parking, and  
look-off areas. You can choose to walk the entire trail or do only a small section.  
Wooden trail markers point the way.
