One of our favorite and most popular walks is along Carters Beach Road. CNLT has conserved 27 acres of green space, which we call Carters Beach Corridor. It’s a lovely walk down an unpaved road towards Carters Beach, with its salt pond (great for birding!) and a trail-lined preserve owned by Frenchman Bay Conservancy.
Starting at the junction of Haskins Road and Carters Beach Road on Hancock Point, the road takes you along acres of woodlands to the left and features a spectacular view of Frenchman Bay to the right. The woodlands are host to numerous species of wildlife including owls, water fowl, ducks, deer, fox, moose, and bear. The waterside offers public areas for picnicking, low-impact fishing, and beach combing.
It’s a wonderful place to take a walk, swim in the bay, and simply take in the beauty and quiet of the area. The ability to walk along a wood-lined road, right on the ocean, provides a rich outdoor experience for all ages.
CNLT sees this corridor as a prime place for preservation with the goal of ensuring public access to this unspoiled area in perpetuity. CNLT plans to continue its efforts for widespread conservation along this corridor.
