An informative interpretive trail over marshland and through forests.

Bay View Interpretive Trail is a 1-mile easy trail that provides a nice view of Belmont Bay. As the trail crosses a tidal marsh and goes through a hardwood forest the hiker will learn how the health of the bay depends on the health of the creeks that flow into it and the health of the creeks depends on the health of the land from which it flows. Educational signs make this a good trail for school, youth or scout groups.
