Come explore the lesser-visited corners of Castle Hill and its surroundings with us this season. This hike is a CraneOutdoors guide favorite because it’s got a little bit of all the things that make the Crane Estate such a special place…
- A stroll along the spine of Castle Hill, starting at the Great House, down the famous Grand Allée, and ending at Steep Hill with far-reaching views of Ipswich Bay, Plum Island, and the New England coastline all the way into Maine? Check.
- A walk along the Crane Estate’s less visited, but-no-less-beautiful “other” seashore (Steep Hill Beach) where, if the tide is right, you can see a shipwreck? Check.
- A hike through the dunes with spectacular views of the saltmarsh surrounding Fox Creek? Check.
- A visit to the newly renovated Rose Garden and the beautiful Italian Garden? Check.
This hike brings us through historical built landscapes, past sweeping views of Castle Neck and the Great Marsh, and through quiet woodland trails. This one truly has it all.
