Good family hiking place. Did the 8 mile hike once before in the rain and the 2 mile hike today. With a toddler on your shoulders most of the way it's more like a 4 mile hike :)

Loved this trail! We did the 4.6 mile loop and we're delighted with its scenery, changing landscapes and well- marked trails. Truly lovely for a winter hike and looks like it might be beautiful in late spring/early summer as wild rhododendron are everywhere!

Very nice, well marked trail. Good for dogs and very fun during the winter. Will have to come back during the warmer months to experience the beach in full affect.

Very well marked, varying length trails through differing types of forest. Well worth the $2 entry fee.

I did the yellow trail, which was almost 8 miles. It was a little tricky due to recent rain. They maintain the trail.

There is a small fee when entering, paid $2.00. Followed the red trail. Lots of different terrains. Some sections were harder than others. Beautiful and peaceful. One of the few trails we've walked where we saw other people on the trails. Only downside is that there is a lot of areas where you aren't protected from the sun so it gets really warm. Bring a lot of water. Would do it again.
