nice walk, very fun, lots of sand from the dunes though so it makes it very difficult after a while. still totally worth it and a good time!

we only made it as far as the dunes because we started too late in the day (we stumbled on it accidentally on a drive through the area after dinner) but it was so beautiful! took our three kids (8, 6, and 2) and our Saint Bernard and they all handled it easily. we plan to go back early in the day and walk the entire thing because it was so breathtaking!

Diverse and amazing scenery, forest meets dune slopes. Great for trail running. Nicely shaded in the forest, secluded beach

Minor elevation gain over 3 miles to reach great views of both freshwater lake & ocean. Found a camp site at the edge of the trail, but didn't find a defined trail to the shore. I accessed lake via steep dune. Not sure if there is a better way to enjoy the beautiful lake.

Excellent trail, would not describe this as Hard, Moderate perhaps. Trail is very well maintained, many very large moss covered trees, totally beautiful.

I only went to the south camp on a solo 2 day trip but it was still lots of fun! Highly recommend to people who like a quick easy trip with a nice lake.

It's been a few years, but we had a blast with this trail. Did have to remove our shoes to cross water to our ankles. Wooded sections, sandy dune spots, and beach! Didn't see any other folks either way.

It's a great trail and not as difficult as the signs would have you believe. It does have some decent elevation changes though. We enjoyed the semi-private access to the lake at the end.

Great hike with kids. About 30 minutes in (at slow pace) The trail gives you the option of taking a small loop or a larger loop where parents can opt for more or less depending on how things are going.

Awesome hike. It's not hard as I thought it would be. Very easy hike but it does get your heart pumping. My 65yr old no hiking experience mom loved it.
