The National Seashore workers have started Phase II of repairing the boardwalk on the Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill. After years of constant use and stormy winters, many of the boards need to be replaced.
You can still hike the trail from beginning to end as they are working on the offshoot of the trail. It is one of our favorite trails as it has so much to see. You hike in the woods, across a long boardwalk, along the marsh, through the fields and back up to the overlook, which doesn’t get much prettier.
Thank you, National Seashore, for all that you do to make the trails so beautiful for all of us to enjoy.
