To get here, take the Polpis Road until you come to the Quaise Pasture Road on your left. Take this road until you come to a small cul-de-sac parking lot and a Conservation Foundation marker.

The trail is very short, but the views of West Polpis Harbor are worth the trek. Take any of the paths and follow them along. You really can’t get lost. Traipse over boardwalks, through a deciduous forest, with mushrooms, ferns, and lots of mossy tree roots.

There are a few places where the trail comes out to the shore of Polpis Harbor. At low tide, you can walk along the shore for a bit, or stay on the trial for the beautiful view of the harbor.
