This was a fantastic ride. Beautiful scenery, great trails, and the surrounding area off the trails were very nice. Nice homes along the coastline.

Really nice views of the river and water. From the trail head by Divine Wines, keep heading right on the trails so you can hug the river. There are a few unmarked trails that veer off of the trail that runs parallel that never stray far from the main trail, and they are well-traveled, providing very nice views. Take a detour from the loop in the fall and walk along the beach boardwalk (to get back to the loop, head straight through the parking lot when you go under the wooden walking bridge under the stone bridge, stay to the right of the lot to hook up with the trail through a marsh (beautiful, entrance can be found near picnic tables). Alternatively, go straight to the paved road at the far end of the lot and take a right, which will bring you back to the loop.
