This trail is currently closed due to COVID You can still go to the beach and hike there though.

It was a nice hike. A bit more than a mile of the hike is on the beach shore.

I had a great time but the outline isn’t for people with dogs. Dogs can go to the dune stairs and the parking lot of Hoffmaster. No beach access allows pets.

Good workout and hike but a few places were solid ice. More people than I expected, most with dogs unleashed (does anyone follow the rules?). I think will be quite busy in the warmer months. I prefer more seclusion but if you're a beach person this is nice.
