Let’s explore Plum Island by bike with six miles in length and relatively flat terrain (great for beginners). Please note, however, that we'll be biking to Plum Island from the bike rental shop, so the total mileage will be 10.2 miles one way. We’ll climb an observation tower which will provide us with views of the entire island, and afterwards we can explore the Hellcat Wildlife Observation Area if there’s interest. We can also decide to go to the beach along the way, and later we can grab a bite to eat at downtown Newburyport.
This trip is rated as moderate for the amount of miles over eight hours. You must know how to ride a bike.
Bike rentals can be selected as well. If you have your own bike, you may bring it with, and we will attempt to accommodate you. However, if there is no room for your bike, you must be ready to rent a bicycle.
Bring closed-toe shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, one liter of water, snacks, and bug spray. Also bring comfortable shorts or athletic pants; we do not recommend jeans. Have a light jacket on hand in case of wind.
