Corsons Inlet State Park was established in 1969 to help protect and preserve one of the last undeveloped tracts of land along the states oceanfront. The areas natural habitats are rich in the diversity of its wildlife with primary and secondary sand dune systems, shoreline overwash, marine estuaries and upland areas in which hundreds of wildlife species live and breed. The park offers outstanding scenic beauty and endless opportunities for observing a multitude of migratory and residential wildlife species. Corsons Inlet is extremely popular for hiking, fishing, crabbing, boating and sunbathing.

The part of the trail that goes from the parking lot to the beach is great. It is well maintained and easy to traverse. Good for small children. Part of the trail is along the beach where there are a ton of shells. We did not find the bugs as bad as some of the other reviewers. We went mid day during early August. It isn't very shady, so I would recommend doing it early or on a cloudy day.

The part of the trail that is along the highway does not appear to be maintained any longer. It is extremely overgrown. I would not recommend going on that part of the trail.

If I wanted to walk on the beach I didn't have to drive to corsons I let to do so

It used to be a really nice hike. Hurricane Sandy destroyed the path and it's almost entirely gone. The beach is really nice though and doesn't require beach tags. No life gaurd though

You will be eaten alive on this trail. We took it to get to the ocean not realizing how thick the brush is. Definitely spray yourself with repellent. We walked this in mid-August around 2pm in perfect weather.

If it's the right conditions (May with south west winds) this place can be a gold mine for birds. Winter the trails are dead but the inlet is full with loons, grebes, and much more
