Beautiful spot. I’d recommend wearing sandals or slip on shoes because it’s basically a walk on the beach so you’d have an easier time barefoot. We went in sneakers expecting a hike and ended up struggling through the deep sand a little and took a decent amount home with us in our shoes. Besides that, it’s a great walk.

Go at low tide. Nice combination of beach and trails. Easy hike but beautiful.

Nice walk. We went out to the end. It was a HOT day, but nice breeze kept us cool. Timed it right with the tides. Lots of Blackbacks. Some terns. Horseshoe crabs. Beautiful views. Lots of sand walking. A definite must for those who need to do more than sit on the beach.

Causeway floods with tides; plan to finish your hike 2+ hours before high tide.

Very pretty beach trail; be sure to wear beach appropriate footwear.

I went early one morning in the fall and the fog was in. Lent the entire walk an ethereal sense. Saw only one other person and enjoyed the variation of terrain over a fairly short distance. Great for seeing birds.

Beautiful spot, the ocean views are amazing, you can see seals across the water. The loop portion of the trail takes you through a nice pine forest with some side trails through the marsh that are worth checking out. The hike is more of a walk and doesn't take long. Would recommend, would do again.
