Gorgeous trail- very unexpected to find so many trees and marsh areas on this bleak island. The stops along the way at the numerous batteries is fun too. If you come before 8:00 the main fort parking area is inaccessible, so I just parked by the fishing pier and backtracked on foot to the fort and trail beginning.

Started at parking lot. First part of Trail is along the beach but after the first fort, it turns into a nice gravel/dirt path that takes you all the way to the main batteries. Flat all the way, a bit windy along the shoreline. Public bathrooms available along hike. Great hike!

A good easy trail, interesting birds and remnants. It was very hot the day we went, so hat, sunscreen, and water are a must.
