Well worth the $15.00 round trip. You will be looking at history and buildings going back to the 1680's. You don't need a tour. Take plenty of water and STAY ON THE TRAIL. You really have no choice. The triple story THORN FOREST will keep...More

If you want to see Hassel on your own time without paying for a tour, call Capt Al with Sea Tow (Frenchtown STT) to drop you off for $10/pp. He'll come back and get you when you're ready. Our group collected tons of sea glass...More

Nice hiking and photo opportunities. Steep hills so not for the unfit or non-able bodied. Wear appropriate shoes. Take plenty of water and sunscreen. Very private with historical sites to explore.

Great place to go hiking and see a bit of history! Most of the hiking is not too bad, but some of it is in the sun and some has some elevation, so comfortable shoes and plenty of water are a must!
