Experience a variety of natural landscapes at the Great Neck Conservation Area! On the first loop, owned by Wildlands Trust, enjoy beautiful views of salt marsh, abandoned cranberry bogs, and a pond. Continue on to wander through pitch pine and oak forests and encounter the drumlin, which is a smooth hill formed under retreating glaciers thousands of years ago. For those looking to explore further, follow the connecting loop, which is owned by the New England Forestry Foundation. This trail leads out to the salt marshes of Little Harbor. Each loop is about 2 miles long, but there are connecting trails to shorten the walk if necessary.

Please be respectful of neighboring private landowners and always stay on the marked trails.
