One of the most beautiful parks so far BUT: PAN-TICK-MONIUM! It was the stuff of nightmares. They infested my shoes and I had to leave them on the trail and walk the gravel road barefoot just to escape. It’s been days and I am still having bad dreams.

We went last weekend (5/16/20) and I thought this was a great short trail. Saw lots of wildlife ( snakes, fish, plovers, osprey, and eagles!) the trail forks a ways in but stay north, if you head west it will take you back down the road. Lots of ticks, be careful. The end of the trail is nice and pretty, good spot to sit out and eat a quick lunch. Would definitely go back later in the season when it’s less tick-y.

Ticks slowed us down but overall worth the beach ending. Low tide but the kids were happy to poke around on the shore. No one around. Constant tick checks. About half the trail has longer grass from the trees being downed from the southern beetle. Nice birding and saw a snake and some deer on the way back. Need to keep an eye on the tides if you want to access the beach have a long stretch of tidal marsh that is under water at points.

Nice hike to the water. Saw some ospreys and a bunch of Sandpipers by the water. There are alot of trees down due to the Southern Pine Beetle issue but the walk was nice. Trail is very flat and mostly well maintained.

Memorial Day weekend 2pm - got attacked by not only by mosquitoes but also by numerous ticks, large and teeny, in the narrow path inward past the private house. There are small glasses throughout the path - not just along the sides - and altogether must have removed 50 b/w there and home where we stripped down and still had a couple of remaining. If the County is going to consider this a trail then it needs to maintain the path. Thank God we didn’t bring our black-haired dog. Never reached the beach, and we will not be returning.

When I loaded the directions in to my Google maps app, it said I was there but I wasn't. I parked across the street and was able to find the Hubbard County Park entrance. (gate was down and authorized vehicles only sign helped me find the starting point, along with the trail map on here). the first .6 miles were great. Some of the reviews on here complained about bugs but from the timeframes of the reviews it seems they went in the middle of the hot summer. I heard bugs in the trees but had no problem with any, it was a nice fall 65 degree day. After the .6 miles there was a big private residence. Got to see several deer staring at me from behind the residence in the woods, but just kept walking to get to the second leg of the trail. However when approaching it the residences 2 dogs were barking and howling at me and didn't let up. I got on to the trail again and walked another several hundred feet but then the trail became very grassy, I didn't want to risk any ticks and honestly the thought of passing the dogs again made me a little uneasy, so I turned around and was relieved to see their owner outside and the dogs were quiet. Definitely will be back again to complete the full 1.3 miles to the lake then back, but with a hiking partner. (I am not a dog person obviously). Anyway, nice easily marked trail and a good quick workout/nature fix.

despite two other reviews mentioning mosquitoes... my husband, and I took our infant son and tried it anyway. It was a mistake! Even drenched in deet, there were swarms of mosquitoes . If it weren't for that, it would have been perfect! the trail was actually a road/driveway which was nice, wide and flat. Once past the house there was beautiful dunes and Marsh. very interesting trees and plants. Couldn't stop for pictures or the bugs would get us. When we got to the water there was a nice beach. We went in the water and it was fairly shallow all the way out. The mosquitos didnt follow us to the beach, but were replaced by nasty biting horseflies. In short, beautiful walk but only if you like being eaten alive.

Boring and extremely buggy. Not usually bothered by them but crazy bites

A lot of cut down trees but a beautiful stroll.
