Super easy trail with gorgeous lookouts. Can be heavily trafficked depending on time of year/week.

My 1yo had fun walking the flat parts and playing in the sand. Stopping at Village Pizza and Tiffanys ice cream are definitely highlights of this trip!

Trail was amazing, well kept and spacious. Unfortunately it started raining 5 minutes into the hike but the trail was perfect.

Beautiful, easy trail. I went in spring when the trees were a bright green. The view of the water at the end of the trail is amazing too. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous views and great hiking! If you feel adventurous, you can continue along the lake shore on the dunes, you can't beat the scenery!
