Hamlin Reservation

Ipswich, MA

The Hamlin Reservation, located in historic Ipswich, MA is a “…former coastal farmland now welcomes visitors to a broad salt marsh and a dike path that leads to a loop trail around Eagle Island,” according to the Trustee’s website.

There is a small parking area for visitors. The trails have no elevation and meander gently through open fields and marshland.

Yesterday was another spectacular day for hiking – this time in Ipswich and Essex.

The Trustees’ Hamlin Reservation in Ipswich and Stavros Reservation in Essex are short hikes but are worth your time.

There is a great view of Essex Marsh and a bit of Crane’s Beach.

Look at that hair!
