Early Spring Beach Hike at Crane's Beach (Ipswich) & Ipswich Sports Bar

  • This location is shown only to members

This is one of my favorite beach walks and since I missed it in January, I am offering a second chance to do it in the early spring.There is something beautiful about the beach and ocean in the early spring.The sand dunes are a great hike and yes we are allowed on them! $7 fee per car to get in.We hike for about 2 hours and then head to out for food and drinks after at the Ipswich Sports Bar.

What to wear - WARM clothes. Ski jacket or windbreaker. Ski pants are good or something lined. It is VERY windy, so dress accordingly. Definitely recommend a hat,
scarf, gloves, etc.

For feet - sneakers are fine, but recommend winter boots or hiking boots.I also recommend thick hiking socks with boots/sneakers, which can be find in REI or even Target. Important to keep your feet dry.

Bring a backpack for water, trail mix, even advil if the spring allergies are out.

We will start promptly at 12:30. There will be three different hikes of varying distances. We will all finish hiking by 2:30 pm and head over the Ipswich Sports Bar, which is located at 24 Hammatt St in the center of town.

CARPOOLING:

I encourage carpooling especially if groups of friends will be going. It also saves on the entrance fees. Please make these plans among yourselves.

Snow/Rain cancels this event.

Hope to see you there!

    Denise, you said it all! I enjoyed the company and the hike tremendously! Thank you so much Phaedra for running another picture perfect event! I agree, the new route was an outstanding alternative to the longer, "beach storming" one! Thanks everyone also for the awesome pics!
