Be aware their is a fee to get in. I thought this trail was pretty with the marsh and swamp views but the bugs were ridiculous. We have never been attacked with bugs like this on any other hike. So we decided to take the other trail (the access road) on the way back.
Due to the Cliffs recently crumbling down, a lot was blocked off but it was still a pretty view. Be aware the beach has no shade and don’t count on finding a shark tooth.
I suggest going early on the weekends because it does get crowded as the day goes by.
A fairly easy hike tho.

Heavily trafficked, but kids had fun searching for fossils. We walked the Red Trail to the beach and used the service road to return. It was too long of a walk for a 3 and 1 year old, so we used a double stroller. The double stroller consumed most of the width of the Red Trail, and the stroller struggled on the roots on the red trail. We chose the service road for the return, and the person pushing the double stroller struggled with the hills on the service road.
