Really neat experience climbing up a sand dune and down again. Pretty steep hill but definitely doable with a nice view :) Take some water along.

AWESOME views. About 9 bug dunes to the beach, and then back

YIKES! This trail was definitely "Hard"! Wear tennis shoes and bring lots of water! Start early! Our group went a little off-trail because it was easier to walk on the plants/harder ground than digging into the sand. Took a few hours because we spent a lot of time at the Lake eating and resting for the hike back. Great to say you've done it though!

Fun but going back is tough. Made it to 18 of the 27 markers.

Great hike! We didn't run into anybody until we were on our way back. It was very populated then so I recommend that you go early. We had an eagle fly over us as we approached the beautiful lake!

Very scenic and challenging. Definitely has its ups and downs but the lake at the end makes the journey worth the effort.
