trails are good for kids and pets! mostly flat, very well marked, pretty scenery. I thought this hike was going to bore me at first but then I came upon a few hidden gems that really made it a calming experience. gets VERY busy though.

Beautiful day to be out, but very windy. We did the main trail out to the orange trail and then took the purple/white trail to the purple trail and then the main trail back. Ended up being about 3.5 miles. The orange trail went thru the marshes over a number of boardwalks. The purple/white trail was they the woods and much more shaded, along with 2 bird blinds overlooking the marshes. Trails are well marked and well maintained. Lots of families were out, but once on the marked trails, we ran into few folks.

I just moved to the area and wanted a nice trail to walk my dogs. I only walked the red trail and it was a nice walk. I will return when I have more time and complete the red and yellow trail.

Really nice trail with cool views of the bay especially at the end. Little hidden gem especially since there’s not a lot of trails in this area :(

Great little spot, some nice views but I’d suggest wearing pants and high socks because during the summer and fall there’s a lot of ticks and flys and the trail isn’t that well maintained.

Very pretty. Nice texture from forest to beach to trail. Red trail is very overgrown. Blue trail is the way to go. Great stroll. Date walk. Dog walk or just a walk.
