Easy hike that takes you through a landscape you don’t expect to see. It starts out in a maritime forest before entering a schrub thicket and then onto sand dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see. The sound and marsh views are wonderful. There is about a 30 foot climb straight up a sand dune when coming back from the sound. The visitor center at the trailhead is nice and has several interesting nature exhibits including fulgurite from lightening strikes on the sand dunes.
