The 1-mile trail begins in the woods before the boardwalk begins, winding its way through the trees until the views open up in the bog and the boardwalk can shoot out straight ahead. It's mostly flat the whole way, making this trek an easy walk/hike for folks who want to take in the Maine outdoors in leisurely fashion.
Plenty of scenic stops along the way to follow trails, sit at the beach or walk the breakwater in Camp Ellis. There are several general stores along the way to stop for more water or an ice cream sandwich and you'll get to cruise through all the activity in OOB (Hey! Stop in a buy a T-shirt).
