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.

The trails weren't bad but the best parks were the rocks along the shore line. We saw a few duck and after speaking with some other walkers we learned the deer hang out in the grassy part off the ocean shore trail.

Love to visit this awesome spot to see wintering ducks. It seems in February and March, you're pretty much guaranteed to see Harlequin ducks. (Scope is helpful!) and with this place being a peninsula, one can usually find a spot on some side where you're...More

This refuge has long quiet paths boardering the Atlantic. Fantastic views and opportunity to see wildlife. A sanctuary worth the visit. Trails require good shoes, no dogs allowed.

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???
