This trail is great if you have little children and have strollers or for handicapped people. It is very accessible. For me though, I rather enjoy a longer, non- paved trail. I would also consider this pretty safe also, as it was fairly crowded when I was there.

Pretty short for a trail run. The trail was paved the entire way. Gorgeous views!

Nice quick trail to get your steps in. Seeing the tiny crabs on the intercoastal is pretty cool too.

It was crowded and short. As a serious naturalist/hiker, I would not recommend it.

We had a great time adventuring today! My daughter loved following the animal footprints.

Great short walk for those with limited time; perfect for a quick lunchtime walk.

Easy walk with a fun game along the whole thing. Was able to do with a 11 month old carrying him most of the time. Not the most scenic walk but a good walk for the family.
