Hiking

The trail from from Inglehook Fen isn’t marked and when you get to MacKereicher Beach there’s a sign which instructs you to take the beach trail because the dunes are a protected habitat for rare plants. I recommend walking the beach, however. The low rating is to discourage use of this trail/hike.

WalkingNo shadeOff trail

Shore walk with sweeping views and dunes. Winter beach erosion, creates a steep strand. Snowy plovers are other shore birds. Fishing allowed south of the Inglenook Fen.

HikingOff trail

Trial is completely overblown and unrecognizable. Trying to follow it would contribute to dune erosion. If you consider a hike: try Russian Gulch trails

Nature trips

This is an amazing place. I would recommend going off trail, because there are tons of dunes a bit inland to explore

Had a great walk along the shore picking up plastic debris, amazing the stuff that washes up and very sad to think of the stuff that does not!

First to Review

This is a hidden gem, seals everywhere and a boardwalk, yes a bordwalk. But no fries or games or selling of crap, just wood and the ocean and some seals, and hopefully you
