Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park is a gorgeous coastal hike. It’s my favorite type of trail. After hiking through the forest, you take a short passage down to the ocean’s edge and emerge onto stunning coastal views.
We did this hike as winter was winding down last year, so the snow was manageable as we hiked through the forest, although we did still need our crampons. When the weather starts warming up, you need to be extra cautious about ice. Since there is a lot of melting and refreezing happening at this time of year, there can be some hidden slick spots.
The entire hike was wonderful, but the best part was easily the spectacular ice patterns that had formed over the rocks that are scattered on the beach. With the sun glistening off the ice, it was otherwordly and we had a lot of fun exploring along the water’s edge.
Do you live next to the ocean? Do you have a favorite spot to go?
