Love this place with kids. Have gone before and they have many places to see turtles and birds and the boardwalk makes it easy to navigate with children.

A nice place to spend 1-2hrs on a Sunday afternoon. The boardwalk made for some cool pictures. Very kid friendly but no pets allowed in this park.

I did this trail twice. Once last winter and once this past spring. In the spring there were just too many bugs and too much mud. I am not afraid of bugs at all but when the hike was over my pants were just covered in tiny bugs and my sneakers were caked in mud. I obviously should have worn my hiking boots and bug spray is a must. Last winter was much nicer. It was a beautiful clear day but the trails were still muddy. They also had a lot of damage from Sandy so some of the trails were completely closed. The trails are well marked and there are maps along the way to help get your bearings.
