HikingBugsGreat!

The end of the furthest trail snakes out to a beautiful dune area near the beach. The white sands, seclusion, dunes, and beautiful sky lend this place an otherworldly beauty. This might be one of the most breathtaking places I've visited in Florida. Regarding the trails: they are easy, very accessible, and well marked. You will not have problems getting out to the dunes, but it might take you some time. Bring bug spray.

Nice variety of plants and a good view of the lake. However, I did not enjoy how much (~40%) of the trail was paved.

Easy, well established trails throughout the park. Avoid the paved parts unless you want to be buzz bombed by the battery powered biker gangs.

Paved in some but mostly sand. Bathrooms are well kept and the place is family friendly. If you wish to do the full 10, be aware, there is no shade and the lake loop is all sandy dunes that feel as if you are walking in a dessert. Beautiful views though.

A very personal experience elevated by the great scenery. Was $4 to park (didn’t explore to look for free parking nearby) and well worth it

I imagine that most Florida trails are similar to this one in this area. Good amount of diversity of flora and fauna, a nice boardwalk and beach area, and an enjoyable trip to one of the lakes.

Many trails to hike here at Topsail. 15 miles of trails that have recently been renamed and there is an updated map available at the ranger station. View rare coastal dune lakes untouched by development, endangered carnivorous pitcher plants, old growth long leaf pine trees, remnants of the turpentine industry, a beautiful beach unlike any other, and much more!!
