This is a popular place for wind-surfing. This is a short loop down West Sherman Island Road and along the beach front. Great for dogs, kids and fishermen.

Great little sandy beach for the dog to swim at!

I felt bad for this trail.

Don't bother unless you like visiting the dump.

Despite the interesting location, there's not much of a reason to visit this location. Most of the trail is lined with old, dirty carpets, probably so those windsurfing can walk them without wearing shoes. There's loads of trash and abandoned windsurfing gear everywhere, and it costs $5 to enter this space. Unless you want to go windsurfing, there's little reason to visit this place
