      Hither Hills is one of the most scenic trails in our area. Water views along the coastal trail are not to be missed but there are some sandy areas too. Make sure you bring lots of water and snacks as the trails can be quite lengthy. The serpents back trail is "easier" in the northbound direction. There's lots of plant diversity as the trail winds through coastal forests to mountain laurels to native grasslands. Be sure to stay on the middle of the trail to avoid ticks and poison ivy. The West Overlook lot has a kiosk with maps.
