One of the shortest trails at First Landing State Park. Suitable for all abilities. This trail is very short and easy. It is on the campground side of US60, not across the highway with most of the trail system.

First Landing Park trails, in their entirety, are great way to spend your entire day. For the most part, they're all flat trails, with the only challenge coming in their length depending on how much you prefer to walk. Be sure to pick up a park map from the trail Center. It's worth noting that there's also a parking pass fee ranging from $5 to $10 depending on the time of year.

This is a beautiful walk. It is so different than the forest, lakes and Cyprus swamp trails in the main park across the highway.

Cool walk out to the beach. Lots of ships to see offshore. There is a free telescope along the boardwalk, but if you just paid to get in the park, I guess it is not free.
