Easy hiking but beautiful trail

Huge Wasp nest near slot to pay entry fee. Got a $100 (!) ticket for not paying. Would avoid until they get rid of wasp nest. Money hungry state trying to suck every last penny out of us. And you know that ticket money is not going to making the Park better and getting rid of wasps.

Beautiful trail and fun for bike rides. Went hiking recently with my family and dog and found more than one tick on each of us.

First hike with my 3 and 5yo. They did pretty well. I didn't do the full trail. Kids enjoyed where I could get their water shoes out and they played in a ankle deep stream for about 20 mins. They were also very distracted trying to pet all the dogs we passed.

Amazing views and cool birds and bugs to see!

The fallen logs had been neatly placed off the trail and two people were working on parts of the trail today. They were friendly. This was a nice trail with a lot of variety. My Golden loves it too!

Perfect for first timers!

Great kinda trail for multi age families, very easy and clean and beautiful scenery

Moderate trail, couple nice views.

Very easy trail, nice spot to sit and have a picnic.

Absolutely love this trail! It is my sanity.

Fantastic views and very well marked and maintained trails. Just gorgeous!

Love this little hike with the family and dogs.

Easy level trail. We brought our cat and she had no problems. Would be great for a trail run

Very easy trail, kids enjoyed it and had a nice picnic at the light house.

This trail was quite popular for good reason. Sun coming through the pines was breath taking. I made a note of the private camp sites. Beware! Port a Johns are a distance and water even further. Backpacking with a car! Sounds good to me. Longer trail and tent on list for the future. Bottom line, worth the drive from Wilmington!

I'd call this a easy moderate trail, scenic views of the marsh and Big Elk Creek. I wore sneakers but probably should have worn my hiking boots, I was fine without poles. Wear insect repellent, there are a lot of mosquitoes, ticks and spiders.

Fun and a nice workout.

Smells great. The smell of leaves from these trees makes it very pleasant.

This is a great hike especially in the fall. It is challenging enough for a afternoon walk. This is a good hike for all ages because there is a playground. I have also biked this trail and it is very nice around the lake. I also recommend stoping to see the island trail it is really neat.

Nice trail for a afternoon hike but nothing amazing. The trail is about 5 Miles long and is good for all ages but bring plenty of water.

This was a nice trail. There are restrooms at the trailhead and lots of parking. I went on a colder day while it was snowing so there was not much traffic.

Love this trail. Great walk to clear the mind. Only met a few people along the way.

Nice hike and trail is fairly well maintained. There were two places that I paused to figure out the trail path, but the snow may have had something to do with that. Talk about snow, caution, this trail is VERY VERY slippery today due to the snow and the wet leaves. Make sure you hike on a low tide due to the beach walk.

Best barkpark ever!!!!!!!

Very easy walk on the main trail to the Lighthouse and a great view. I took the loop which was a little more effort. I told the Ranger of falling trees on the loop path.
