Trails at Mt. Loretto

Mt. Loretto Unique Area is home to three trails: Wetlands Trail, Grasslands Trail, and Beach Loop. The Wetlands Trail is the only one of the three that has a self-guided brochure. With eight stops along the trail, the many water features of Mt. Loretto provide safe havens, food sources, and nesting grounds for many species. Some of the stops talk about the bird life at Mt. Loretto or the wildlife found at a pond, while others discuss the importance of wetlands, both tidal and freshwater, and make you wonder about the human impacts to the water communities located at Mt. Loretto.

On the map (see below for links to the trail map), the Wetlands Trail is designated as a dashed line while the Beach Loop and the Grasslands Trail are solid lines. This is to show that the Wetlands Trail has a self-guided brochure to go with it. This brochure will be available soon at the Welcome to Mt. Loretto kiosk near the parking lot.
