Super simple all flat trail. The first mile or so was on graveI and it smelt great with all the pine trees around. I definitely recommend bug spray for this, as I was getting attacked all over, especially near the canal. To my surprise I got to see an old abandoned barn. Took me about 30 minutes to get here from 30th st. in Ocean CIty, MD. I think this trail would be best suited for a bike ride or a jog. Plan on going back in the fall to see how it is then.
