Trail
“ This trail winds through mixed forest, including everything from old growth pines to apple trees. The easy loop trail descends to Long Cove, providing numerous views of the water. Lookout for osprey nestled in large “stick nests,” or soaring over the cove searching for fish to eat. The trail drops down to the rocky shore, and is a great place for an afternoon picnic.”

Point of Interest
“Catch some great sunsets from the bridge. There are a couple of parking spaces on the west side of the bridge near the dock. Be careful when driving across the bridge and drive slow. The bridge can be slippery and there are often fisherman working on the docks with their trucks. Space is limited so if there are a couple other vehicles there, then you will need to visit this spot later. ”

Cafe
“The Salt Cod Cafe makes wonderful muffins, sandwiches and soups. The building has been in the same family for generations. It is right next door to H2o Outfitters where you can rent kayaks. Just a wonderful way to spend a beautiful summer day.”

“Flag cove is one of the most popular beaches to swim and sunbath. The water is warm and you have a rock formation to jump off from. There is also a kiddy pool for the young ones to play in. The East side of the beach is sandy as well.”
