    Montville Trailhead

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Across the road from the visitors center is the Montville Trailhead. Here you can take one or more of three trails: The Montville Nature Trail is a 1/2 mile loop trail. It is a little steep in spots but not that difficult. This is the only other trail I hiked because it started to rain before I completed it. There is also the 1 mile one way Wellington Ditch Trail which also leads to the campground, and the 3.7 mile one way Mosca Pass Trail. The Mosca Pass Trail is steep in some parts and is considered moderately difficult.

    There is a short (.5 mile) interpretive loop trail near the visitors center that will introduce you to the ecology and wildlife of the area. This trail connects to a trail that leads through the salt sheet to the dunes.
