trail running


kid friendly


Very hot and humid as it is this time of year. Well maintained trail. Defiantly stroller accessible IF yours has BOB style wheels. Lots of smells crabs to watch and fish jumping. The sun on the water is beautiful. Wooden walk way over the water is in great shape. Parking lot had plenty of room too. I did it with a 7 month old on my back.

Absolutely beautiful trails and well maintained! The only reason I would not rate higher is because the trails are not marked at all. Still, they are clean and easy to navigate with interpretive signs along the way with plenty of wildlife.

great walk for a family

Great place for a run or stroll! Just make sure that you bring or spray yourself with mosquito repellent & plenty of sunscreen!

Lots of fiddler crabs and well maintained boardwalks. Definitely an easy walk or run.

really liked this trail great for everyone and lots of beautiful views.

This was a fantastic thru-hike starting at the northern trail head near cherry point and heading 21 miles south to oyster point. It offers a little bit of everything; rolling hills, beach, flat open views, swamp land with foot bridges, salt marsh and more. The shelters are in pretty good shape (There are 3 along the trail) and each of them are accompanied by a water pump so that's pretty convenient. One major thing to prepare for, the southern section of the trail is a little undeveloped (Still blazed clearly though) and you will be sloshing through about 2 miles of knee deep mud/standing water. Didn't hurt my pace too much, but a few people on the trail were somewhat surprised by that obstacle. Overall it's a great beginner trail, or a good 2 day hike to keep up your skills.

Lovely trail, but had to turn around because of the mosquitoes. bring bug spray and plenty of water.

My husband and I went last month and the flies and ticks were horrendous. Bring your bug spray and check yourself after your hike. All in all we very much enjoyed this trail

great short trail.
