“Enjoy a hike through pitch pine forests, quiet country lanes, and the beach.”— William Collins
Family Friendly Kids will love exploring the forest and beach along this loop.
Follow the Old King's Highway surrounded by the nobs and kettles of a pitch-pine forest for about a mile until it merges with Higgins Hollow Road.
Continue to the left onto Higgins Hollow Road and follow it until it ends on Longnook Road. Continue to the right onto Longnook Road passing hundreds of years of colonial cottages on the way to its end at Longnook Beach.
From here, descend to the Great Beach and turn to the right for a hike along the Atlantic's battered cliffs. Hike the beach for about a mile till you reach the first hollow in the cliffs.
Ascend through the hollow into the Pamet Valley and follow the trail from the beach. At the next fork in the trail, bear right and follow the trail past bearberry-encrusted hills and cranberry bogs to reach North Pamet Road.
Continue to the left along North Pamet Road to the starting point at the parking area.
