Wholy bugs! Tried to take the songbird trail and had to bail at about 3 miles. I had swords of bugs all over me from the first step out of my car all the way. It was so miserable. I couldn't stop to take pictures because every time I would get bit. I wish I could say it was nice but didn't really see anything because of the swords of bugs around me I couldn't get them off. Horrible wish I could have enjoyed the wildlife.

I went in June and it was awful. I was swarmed by some type of biting fly and had to turn back after half of a mile.

White sandy gravel. Easy to navigate. View of atlantic city casinos for a little while. First 6 miles are wide open and flat, last 2 are wooded and slightly hilly. 2$ bike entry fee, $4 car fee. High wind resistance for 5-6 miles due to closeness to ocean.
