Great trail for runners looking to challenge themselves with hills!! I've run it many times. I like to add it to my long runs to add a little elevation. It's shaded most of the way, and it has several wooded bridges half way through the loop. Don't let people fool you on the difficulty level. It will get your heart rate up for sure, but it is totally worth your time.

Beautiful hike just minutes away from the oceanfront and town center. Easy trail with slight elevation changes and nice variations between we'll kept trails and man made bridges and paths over swampland. Variety of wildlife to see also!
