The Details


The 2.3-mile beach at Quincy Shore Reservation is popular for its jogging & biking trail. Additionally, Caddy Park on the beach's southern end has more than 15 acres of fields and marsh, as well as a play area, lookout tower, and picnic tables. To the north is Moswetuset Hummock, a National Historic Site, which was in the 1600's a summer campsite for the Massachusett tribe. It's now a mix of woodland trails and marshland.
