Great small trail on intracoastal with considerable birding opportunities if you stop, look and listen. Lots of woodpeckers, osprey, owls, raccoons and more

Very pretty trail! Lots of birds. Saw an eagle which was very cool. Short trail and easy. Marsh lookouts are nice. We did see what might be the start of a homeless camp but never saw anyone there so be careful.

Rated two stars because trash everywhere.

Nice and quiet trail with some good sights. The trail loop could be marked a little more clearly since there are a few offshoots. But overall I really enjoyed it.

This was a great little trail with two scenery lookouts. It's a little less than 1.5 miles I think; I circled it 3 times (entrance back to entrance) and clocked about 3 miles, which made for a nice, quick run. Would do it again!

I run my dogs through this park regularly. It's definitely an easy walking trail and not at all moderate. There's a small dock at the very opposite side of the entrance (on the marsh) that looks like could accommodate a kayak - but only during high tide.

Nice shaded, quiet, flat, well-maintained boardwalk/trail on the marsh. First spur has an overlook. Loop has a kayak launch.

it's a super easy, quick trail. prep for bugs in the summer months and bring binoculars for some bird watching!

Solid quick trail, I wouldn't rank it as moderate by any means, definitely easy. Slightly longer than castaway preserve.

Easy trail. Mostly boardwalks and well manicured dirt trails. You can hear the surf at high tide!
