This expansive stone jetty extends for 0.58 miles into Plymouth Harbor. Also on site, the Plymouth Harbormaster and the Leo F. DeMarsh State Boat Ramp, as well as a small public park with a paved/concrete walkway along the water’s edge. The boat launching ramp is appropriate for both trailer and car-top boats (launch/parking fee applies to both).

Features

Do not park here UNLESS you are towing a car-top or trailered boat. Instead, use the town-owned parking lot next door (in front of East Bay Grill). For details on using the boat launch, visit our listing for Leo F. DeMarsh State Boat Ramp.

Trail Description

A paved/concrete path extends along the water’s edge for 0.25 miles from the landward end of the Plymouth Harbor Jetty and through a small town park. The jetty itself is about 0.58 miles in length. Altogether, this makes for a pleasant walk! Within the park, be sure to check out the solar clock, which is visible from the walkway and marked with an informative sign.
