If you’ve never hiked at Kent Point, put it on your “to do” list. The trails are so pretty and the views are spectacular. This bridge leads to beautiful views toward Little Pleasant Bay and the river that leads into it.
We took a hike at Kent Point in Orleans the other day and it was gorgeous with a blue, blue sky and warm temps. Kent Point has such interesting history. (There is another photograph at the end.)
“The Town acquired the Kent’s Point Conservation Area in 1988 after years of planning to preserve the property. The property was subject to a life-estate retained by the seller, Miss Charlotte Kent, who lived to be 100 years old. Her house was removed from the site after her death in 1997.
This land contains more than a mile of undeveloped shoreline. The main trail to the former Kent house site goes up the center of the property leading to a handicapped-accessible boardwalk overlooking The River and the northern portion of Pleasant Bay. ” You can also walk along the shore or on some of the smaller hikes off of the main road.
Phil and I decided to take a horizontal and a vertical photograph from the beach looking out onto Pleasant Bay. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better. What do you think?
