Very easy, primarily boardwalk trail. Goes up a few feet and gives you a beautiful view of Canaveral National Seashore. It is extremely short, but if you hop off the boardwalk and take the little shell ridden trail on the lagoon side, you end up at an opening that people either fish at or just sit and watch birds, fish and little crabs.
The Turtle Mound Trail is an easy hike up and around a midden. It is all boardwalk and modestly high and short. The two observation decks overlooks on the ocean the East side and the West overlooks the mosquito lagoon. Bring sun screen only about half has canopy.
