This is a great place to go to see beautiful vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. Walking trails provide a place to explore. Never crowded once you're on the trails. In the winter this is a prime spot for birding.

Always a good walk - you get great views of the ocean (including seeing the cliff walk in the distance) along with lots of birds (that you may only hear instead of see!).

Very tranquil. Great for a walk, run, or family hike. Plenty of wildlife. Be careful with ticks. Great ocean views. FRESH AIR!

The info center itself was well-presented with knowledgeable, friendly staff. The trails were well-kept, wide, and seemed to be of a surface that handicapped people would be able to navigate. Birds were all over the place; the trails were well-marked; the views were spectacular.

This is a wonderful spot for walking, lots of paths, trail map available, very doable. Wildlife abounds, especially in the winter. For birders, a paradise. Sunrises and sunsets any time of the year are spectacular.

The park attendant pointed out what was seen recently and the "loaner" birding gear was an added bonus.

We like to walk and the path goes along the whole shoreline with great views. There are deer and rabbits and birds everywhere. A favorite attraction and it is all free.

Its open, check on visitors center hours, sure it would be rough going with all the snow, trails aren't cleared. But some good viewing if you're up to it. Skis or snow shoes???
