Choate Island Field Trip
Enjoy one stunning view after the next as we explore the Crane Wildlife Refuge, an island-studded patchwork of salt marsh and tidal creeks located in Essex Bay. During this guided tour, participants will traverse a series of island treasures, walking a spectacular network of carriageways and footpaths that link cobbled beaches and grassy fields with forested hillsides and historic buildings. This tour includes a short complimentary boat ride across the river and culminates with a summit top visit to the Crane Family burial ground on Choate Island. Please note: the full hike is a distance of approximately two miles and can be fairly strenuous.
Boat transportation will be provided to and from Choate Island from the Crane Beach parking lot.
