I enjoyed this park. My only complaint would be the visitors who had no where to put their doggy bags and just left them on the trails because it would simply be too inconvenient to carry them home I guess.

“Odiorne Point is the largest undeveloped stretch of shore on New Hampshire's eighteen mile coast.” The coast provides good potential for seeing beautiful landscape in the “right” light. During my short visit at a less then optimal time of day, I was inspired by three things: - What appeared to be a lighthouse across the water and the colorful fall... More

Delightful to visit - many trails leading to beautiful views of the Piscataque River. Great science center.

Great place for hiking for a few hours - definitely not a place for thin sandals or flip flops - many of the trails are rocky, some with loose gravel, others covered with twigs and roots. I took others advice and parked in the public lot north of the science center parking lot, which was free as it was after... More

This is a wonderful easy bike ride with both paved and unpaved but solid trails for bike riding or hiking! Incredible ocean views, and even more exciting history of the military importance of Odiorne Point!

I can't say a contrary word about spending the day at Odiorne. For a nominal fee one can park, bike and walk along picturesque trails, benefit from traveling docents giving sealife lessons along the rocky shore, picnic and grill, relax in shade or sun, and see lots of unexpected wildlife. The property is also interspersed with WWII artifacts. Restrooms and... More

Great place, clean and not crowded. Grandkids loved poking around the shore at low tide. Easy access.

There are also remnants of gardens dating from the pre-WW II era... More
