It was very easy, wooded and we did not see anyone else.

More brush than trees, but there were enough to shield some of the wind.

Wind, rain, sand! Who had the dumb idea to hike the beach in the winter? Maybe some other time.

Probably a better hike for fall. It was almost Christmas and we got caught in the cold blowing rain. It is too long for the punch. If we had seen the horses maybe I would have enjoyed it more.

I thought we would see some wild horses but it did not happen.

We only went to the picnic area and back. There were a lot of birds but not much else.

Came here in December and it was very quiet. Only a few fishermen. Great walk along the beach. Temperature was good for a walk and no wind was blowing so we loved it. Clean beaches.

Absolutely love it there! I go every fall..

A great beach area

There was a nice breeze going, I did it in 90 degree heat, but that's my fault. I did almost nine miles. I found it very relaxing, I did not see a ton of wild life. I would do it again. There is a picnic are about 2.5 miles in. Use the beach access entry, I used the off road vehicle entrance and it wasn't convenient.

Very nice walk, except for the bugs.
