nice walk, very fun, lots of sand from the dunes though so it makes it very difficult after a while. still totally worth it and a good time!

It's been a few years, but we had a blast with this trail. Did have to remove our shoes to cross water to our ankles. Wooded sections, sandy dune spots, and beach! Didn't see any other folks either way.

Great hike with kids. About 30 minutes in (at slow pace) The trail gives you the option of taking a small loop or a larger loop where parents can opt for more or less depending on how things are going.

We took the trail down till it merged heading south with the tahkenitch dunes trail then bypassed the beach option and connected down to three mile and turned around and headed back. Good hike but bring your sandy shoes, dog loved it!

Easy trail for 10 & 12 yr old. Just the right amount for an afternoon out. Loop is clearly marked in 4 places making it nice breaking it into stages. 1 bench at the beginning of trail offers nice spot for a snack with an ok view. Rated 4 due to it being easy for kids with decent views. Could have been 5 with vista or perhaps more sitting areas for rest stops. Trail has options for longer hikes. I think it may take you to beach if your up for a longer hike

Great for families with strollers. Very pretty and minimal insects during May. Easy stroll in the park, if you will.
