Oak Point Farm boasts stunning natural landscapes and opportunities for wildlife watching in the forest and fields and along the coast. Year-round activities are available at Oak Point Farm. A one-mile looped trail travels the perimeter of the property and passes by a dock and a float on the ocean, which has space for visitors to pull up kayaks as well as three moorings and a dinghy for public use. Visitors can take part in nature studies and wildlife watching at the freshwater pond and Hodgdon Cove or among the apple orchards, woods, and fields. There is an education center at the farm as well as fields for picnics, yoga, and flying kites. In the winter, the trails can be used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and the pond freezes over to become an ideal ice-skating location. The hill next to the cottage can also be used for sledding.

The Universally Accessible Trail (UAT) begins at the accessible parking lot and is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. This shorter trail takes visitors around the pond and along parts of the shore. The trailhead for the other path starts at the general parking lot. Both loops provide beautiful views of the cove and shoreline as well as wildlife.
