Thing to Do

Salt Pond Bay and Ram Head Trails

View from Ram Head to Salt Pond Bay

Salt Pond is perfect for someone looking for a pleasant stroll to a beautiful beach. Just a quarter mile hike from the parking area to beach, has only a slight grade. The long curved beach has a gentle slope into the water making it perfect for everyone. 

It is a 5-20 minute trip to the beach from the parking area, depending on how many beach toys you are bringing. 

It is another 30-50 minutes from the beach to Ram Head. It just depends on how long you stop to enjoy the views. 

Strole down the 1/4 mile old road bed to enjoy the beach and snorkeling at Salt Pond Bay. For the more adventurous, continue onto Ram Head and maybe you will see a whale or dolphin convorting about in the waters below. 

Great hike for all ages if able to climb steep rocky trails.

Entrance fees may apply, see Fees & Passes information.

Great trail for full moon  hikes.

Once there, the more adventurous can tackle the Ram Head trail. This trail is just under a mile long following a narrow path that winds its way to the top of Ram Head. The dramatic views make this hike worth the effort and perfect for a breathtaking sunset hike.
