Plymouth features plenty of parks for hiking, biking, swimming – and sightseeing
Both the town and county of Plymouth are rich in park land, starting with the most famous stretch: the Pilgrim Memorial State Park on the shore of Plymouth Harbor. The park is home to Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower II, and the Pilgrim Trail, which winds through the very pretty Brewster Gardens to a grist mill and Morton Park. There’s great hiking, and educational talks and tours are offered April through November. Farther out, the Myles Standish State Forest is ideal for camping, swimming, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boating and has 13 miles of hiking trails deep into the pine and oak forest. Ellisville Harbor State Park features a salt marsh, open meadow and barrier beach, and in the fall and winter you can view harbor seals.
