Wells Reserve at Laudholm offers various hiking trails in the most beautiful area. The buildings on the property are well kept and lovely. We enjoyed hiking the Barrier Beach Trail through wooded and marsh areas to the beach. The rocky beach has a little sand area. We loved the view as we walked along the coast.

You have a choice of trails; through woods or over fields to a nice stretch of sandy beach. On the latter route there's often sculptures on display. Remember to bring sunscreen, and keep dogs on a leash (the beach includes a bird-nesting area.)

This was a stop during a foliage drive down the coast, so we didn't hike the trail this visit but we did stroll the grounds and visit the museum/gift shop in the historic home. The grounds are views are beautiful, especially in autumn.

We stopped here to hike but also enjoyed the exhibits. The current bird photography exhibit was excellent and a favorite of ours. The historical exhibits documenting the history of the farm, with historical photos, was also excellent. The hike along the boardwalk through the swamp was educational with the signage that is well placed. We were glad we decided to stop here.

We had a nice day, roaming the tents of the craft fair in the morning and then hiking a few of the trails in the afternoon.
