Challenging up and down sand dune trails, is hot & arduous, bring water, wear hat & sunglasses & sun protection, ends at deserted pristine beach but do not swim alone (currents, seals, sharks, drownings have occurred), in general a great hike of sand dune ecology

A very pleasant walk through woods, near marshes, and the Bass River (which looks like a lake). We saw several folks with their dogs and the dogs happily went for a dip in the river which was fun to see. Lots of nice views for photos.

High tide water slog, 18” deep! Right on!

Glorious!!!!! Amazing sand dunes, and if you’re lucky, you’ll even see a few seals!!! I recommend doing this trail in the early morning, it’s so peaceful.

Pleasant little walk with nice views of Bass River.

Great for little ones

This was one of the best hikes I have ever done. Bring a towel and wear your bikini so you can take a dip. Some of the trail was submerged but don’t let that deter you bc there were alternative routes (or just tough it out and walk through the shallows). This was one of the highlights of my summer!

Absolutely gorgeous views. Huge hills, definitely not for a beginner.

Stop at the Beachcomber!

Amazing hike with an extremely rewarding finish at the ocean!

so thick with mosquitoes that even with natural repellent and DEET we couldn't make it 2 minutes down the trail... we will try again in the winter maybe.

Incredible hike to a pristine beach over high dunes. Bring water!

Fun way to get a quick ride with some different terrain choices.

Peaceful, relaxing

one of the best trails ever❤

We love it!

Trails poorly marked, but beautiful area.

nice mix of woods, open areas, good views. Very dog friendly

Not much to look at, but the trail is long and only lightly travelled, at least in autumn.

Big Ring off Race Road is not a hard trail. It's even for the most part and those sections on the "Roads" are easy. Best to keep dogs leashed, as there are lots of critter distractions.

We loved it!
