It's a beautiful trail but I only did half of it so that I could get back down to the beach by sunset. It was the first time I have been hella grateful for the AllTrails feature that warns you when you have wandered off the route. Twice I wound up off the trail when I thought I was doing just fine. Definitely pay attention.

HikingGreat!

A very rewarding hike. I found it difficult. First mile up those dunes was arduous. Beautiful dunes and forest throughout. Had to trail-blaze and crawl a bit at 3 miles as navigation became very difficult. Saw a coyote or wolf. Steep hills necessitate proper hiking boots. Last mile was easy. Great hike!

The worst hike of my entire life. Nothing but flies and poison ivy! I do not recommend this hike to anyone even my worst enemy.

First to Review

Definitely need the app to complete this loop. There are no trail markers. Not much variation in terms of scenery. Most of the walk is in the forest which while quiet and lovely didn’t change much (i.e. lots of scrub pines but no ponds, marsh, vistas, etc.). However, we did come across an old headstone from 1776 out in the middle of nowhere! The beach portion of the loop is gorgeous.
