Nice and relaxing trail. You can do up to 5 different trails with Blue bring the longest at 10 miles. We elected to stay on the green trail of up to 6 miles. Only disappointment? Didn't see much wildlife except for chipmunks and some birds. But very easy trail to walk
A great spot. Friendly staff, magnificent water views with some hills and wetland bridges. Please use caution for ticks in summer.
Nice loops. Many choices for distance. Good seaside views. Good wildlife. Nice place for a picnic.
