Flatts to Palmetto Park

Approximate distance: 1.75 miles

This part of the Trail will take you the roughly 2.5 miles from the village of Flatts to Palmetto Park, after which the railway right of way disappears into the streets of Hamilton. In this section the railway ran further from the shore, part way up the hillside, and the Trail provides some impressive views of the ocean as a result.
