The Abbott's Lagoon Trail leads 1.5 miles from Pierce Point Road to a large lagoon along the coast. This route is an easy stroll through open and coastal scrub, with good spring wildflowers and excellent bird watching, especially in fall and winter. The trail continues a short distance past the lagoon to Great Beach.
