Lyman Reserve reviews
We try to go walking somewhere different every weekend but we've been here a couple times now in different seasons. Very nice trails and if you're adventurous you can find unmarked trails to walk too. more »
A nice easy walk in the woods gets you some scenic views of Buttermilk bay. Plenty of birds to check out when we visited at low tide. About 2 miles of trail total split between the south and north..... more »
I love that you can see the train bridge from this trail.
I love this place. You'll probably not like it, so stay away.
