We walked the beach rather than starting on the trail right away. We returned and did the second halo on the trail. The beach is great, be prepared to do a lot of walking in the sand. That will definitely give you a good workout!

The wildlife and plants are fascinating - we went right after a rain which made the red trail easier to walk. However after only a few minutes we were covered in bug bites - not just ticks as other reviews have indicated. Without bug spray I wouldn’t recommend the trail

Yes, there are ticks but the variety of flowering plants is interesting. Combine this trail with the yellow trail.

Don't even bother with the red trail. You get no additional views or real wildlife viewing opportunities. If you're looking for ticks, then don't miss this one. I had to stop every 50-100 feet for tick checks and found 2 or 3 each time. I was barely even brushing against the vegetation. Just stick to the yellow trail to get to the beach.

It used to be a really nice hike. Hurricane Sandy destroyed the path and it's almost entirely gone. The beach is really nice though and doesn't require beach tags. No life gaurd though
