“Great Hike and Beautiful Views”
Review of Ram Head Trail

It's off the beaten path, but the Ram Head hike is worth the trip. You travel down a .3 mile trail from the parking area to the beautiful beach (where you may be escorted by wild donkeys like we were!) Once you walk around the bay, the trail head is on the far side of the beach. The trail is a little over a mile and takes you through brush, along the water, and up a grassy hill to the Ram Head peak. The trail is pretty exposed, so doing the hike in the early morning will save you from the midday sun. We had adults and kids aged 10 through 14 on the trip and everyone was capable of the climb. On our drive back we stopped at Miss Lucy's for lunch which was a mile or two down the road and had great local food.

Wonderful hike and salt pond bay ended up being a great place to relax and have lunch after the hike. Great views and not too difficult a hike.

Beautiful walk but it was too hot and humid for me and I overheated. There is quite a bit of uphill climbing.
