Adamss point is easy to get to by car and there is usually enough parking spots. You can go for a 30m hike along the bay or for a somewhat longer hike through the woods as well. No real trails, but it's easy to navigate....More

After reading the reviews I thought this would be a fun place to stop. From UNH it seems to take a while. Once there, we found the shale beach, but no trails. I guess I expected trails to walk in. If they were there, we...More

Although not far from Newmarket, this peninsula is pretty isolated. We saw several dog walkers and some cars at the boat launch but walking we were pretty much alone. Did the loop which is mostly flat. Great views of the bay. Saw a heron and...More
