Great trail - a couple super muddy areas and a flooded area as well. We also took the trail into Ottawa Dunes and back out to Hoffmaster. A little buggy but overall a great hike.

Okay trail but too much of it is walking on the road or close to the road. Not my first choice to hike here.

A lot of people out and very few actually practicing social distancing.

Very busy for COVID- 19 orders. But everyone stayed away from each other. 2 to 3 left side which is .4 miles is very muddy and flooded.

It was a nice trail. It looked to be less traveled than others I’ve been on. The trail off the beach was hard to find. Luckily for the this app to help me get back on the trail.

this apps trial is a little outdated. most of the trail is closed. very well kept, and very friendly people.
