Short, easy. Took this trail to picnic with my 3 and 5 year old at the point, then they enjoyed the playground after. They asked for more hiking, so we took Sandy Point trail where they loved finding the baby clam shells by the water. If you’re trying to get your young ones interested in hiking, these are great starter trails.

Intersects with the mountain to the sea trail and can be accessed by parking at the far back lot at blue jay point. Enter the path near the edge of the parking lot and you'll notice red trail markers... after maybe 100 feet take a right and you'll enter the white marker trail. Walk for 5ish minutes and you'll access this trail, take a left and minutes later you're at this amazing private peninsula. Love it

From the Blue Jay Point parking area, we started by the signs that said foot traffic only and took the fork to the right on the MST – which takes you to Blue Jay Point proper, and also all the way to Six Forks road to the east of the park. This direction from the parking lot is more interesting than the west direction, as it travels closer to the water with several water access points, and has some interesting elevation changes. Enjoyed the six bridges built as a Boy Scout Eagle project. Short 3 mile out and back if you include the walk down the wide path to Blue Jay Point which has a small beach and water on three sides. Great day for a hike!
