Nice walking trail that shows a variety of environments from maritime forests to open dunes with ocean views. Right next to the fort so you can explore some history too. Good for walking dogs and have seen many joggers on the trail.

Great trail that varies from open dunes to maritime forest. Nice beach and marsh views. A little hilly in dunes, but generally pretty easy. Bugs can be bad in the summer and dunes can be windy. Cool historical fort to visit too.
