The loop is washed out because of a tidal flow enhancement project in 2009 where it turned out nature had better ideas as to where the tidal current should go. (according to the sign)

You can hike 2.6 miles out to the bay, and a small part of the loop.

IMPASSABLE AND NOT MAINTAINED. We decided to go clockwise around the loop. This meant we found the IMPASSABLE trail 90% done with the loop, which meant this was an 11.5 mile hike. There is more than 10 feet of fast moving water that no one, regardless of ability, should walk through. Afterwards we see a tiny notice that the trail is out, right next to a big map which doesn't note this.

My legs are fully scratched up from unmaintained trail of sharp brush, starting at the shoreline.

For the previous 5 star reviewer: you clearly didn't take the route in the map.

This very rainy winter and apparently no maintenance of this trail means it's completely overgrown and impassable. I was able to run on the farming roads adjacent to the trail for an 8 mile out and back but the deep ruts cut in the mud by farming equipment were difficult to traverse.

Great area with lots of bird watching opportunities. I drive Hwy 37 regularly and it's a beautiful area. Not sure about the bike rider review and people walking around in their underwear, but I would not consider that a worthy review. The description clearly says "The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round." not "...biking only if you tolerate thorns."

I planned on mountain biking the path,but the thorns on the path concerned me,so did the guy walking around in his underwear,by his van.
