This hike traverses an old club, now a superlative natural getaway with a sea view, hills, lush woods, and a unique opportunity to walk portions of a former golf course.
This is a great little trail with a lot of variety and a few scattered "learning stations" with facts about the plants and wildlife, along with controlled burns and stuff like that. About a mile into the hike, there's a beautiful stop off by a pond that's definitely worth a look. Towards the end of your hike you have the option to visit Point Isabel which is absolutely gorgeous with a great view of the river and dunes, and plenty of neat birds. Right at the end of the hike, you can also take a short climb up Mount Cornelia, the highest point on the southeast coast. Make sure to bring plenty of bug spray though, we brought home a couple ticks with us :\
