This series of short trails forms a roughly 3.25-mile loop (including a few side trails) that crosses through wooded areas and dunes with views of the New River, the Pacific Ocean, meadows, a bog, and a pond. It is well maintained and varies from hard-packed dirt to loose sand with a few paved sections with some gentle hills.

Interesting area with a nice flat, well groomed trail. Maybe 20% of the trail is sand and it"s a pretty level trail. This area reminded me a little of Tolowa Dunes but was in better shape. Curiously peaceful area to me. For some reason it made me want to do yoga...which i rarely have done. Maybe should rename New Age Trail... Might have rated it higher but you have to walk on a gravel road twice to complete the loop. No bueno! I fouled up my track but I'll post it just for the pics.

Huckleberries, soft trail and cooling breeze made for a very nice hike.

I thought it was good. I like the lake and river and mossy trees! I was hoping to see more ocean, but little. trails are sandy so some may find it harder to walk! I didn't see much of any habitat. there are car roads to boat ramps so not all hiking is on a hiking trail! you might want to bring water for the somewhat lengthy trek!

Great easy hike. Lots of birds to view.

It's an ok little walk around. Not a great view of the ocean but a little. Really nice lake (Muddy Lake), that was my favorite. It's only 3.2mi if you go out and back each spur.

This is a lovely trail that runs through a number of habitat types. The pond is especially serene and Walden-esque. I went on a Friday morning and didn't see anyone else on the trail.
