I have a question not a review it says 4.1 miles but is that going one way or going in and out?

Neat (mostly) boardwalk trail. If you want to escape the sun/beach for a bit, definitely check this trail out.

Nice walk along the beautiful beaches of Fire Island and through the Sunken Forest, a part of Fire Island that I didn't know existed... Not hard at all...

I actually helped build one of the board walks here way back in high school. Went two years ago, still great.
