This hike was a blast! Four of us hiked in knee and thigh deep water for a mile in and then a mile out on the yellow trail. We had to climb over fallen trees and and lots of mud. The beach had lots of cool shells but also a lot of trash. Not a family friendly hike.
(july 2nd 2012)This is a trail you want to do barefoot for a few reasons it's a soft trail with sand and pine needles, but there was puddles knee deep, to be fair there was a lot of rain the last few days. Definitely bring skeeter spray with a high percentage of deet. But this hike was awesome we saw deer, porcupines and a black bear. All in all it was a good day. The beach was full of shells and no one was around, so that made it nice. Highly recommended!
