Need to Know

The Boy Scout Bridge is often washed away in heavy coastal storms. The stream can be crossed without the bridge, but you're going to get wet.

Description

This trail breaks off of the Great Esker Trail to the left at about the 1.55 mile mark. The trail starts out at the Boy Scout Bridge which crosses a salt marsh stream. The trail bears left along the shoreline of the marsh and then curves to the right along the Weymouth Back River and eventually ends at the end of the Great Esker Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Wood duck, snowy egrets, great egrets, blue herons. This is also an osprey nesting area.
