HikingGreat!

Short trail that leads to a historical site in the dunes. The trail is easy to manage, but be aware that the sand is deep in places and we got several burrs in our socks. It's worth the effort to climb the dunes and see this.

First to Review

This is a short hike up and down steep and sandy dunes. You will encounter two sets of ruins from a World War II gun placement (think Howitzers). The guns were placed on the dunes to protect nearby oil storage tanks from possible attack by Nazi submarines.
