Clayhead Nature Trail
This scenic nature trail winds through shrubs, fields, and wetlands to the Clayhead Bluffs along Block Island's northeast shore. This trail and the maze of trails leading off from it provide wonderful walking and bird watching with views of farms, ponds, and the coast.
There will be some time for swimming and a dinner before we return to the main land.
