About Eastern Point
What Eastern Point lacks in space it more than makes up for in views and wildlife. Located on a peninsula near the historic Eastern Point Lighthouse, the small sanctuary is a hot spot for butterflies and seabirds at particular times of the year. Look no further than the parking lot for unsurpassed coastal seascape.
- Short loop trail through deciduous forest (note that trails may be wet in the spring). The entrance is across from a cul-de-sac named Aileen Terrace.
