Enjoyed this hike in the early afternoon. Decided to take the dogs with us and they seemed to enjoy it as well. Trail was the perfect distance for us and the dogs. The trail was also well kept and void of trash. Keep in mind that you will need to pay to park in the parking lot. 10 dollars for a day pass, well worth it. After the hike there is an opportunity to search for some clams of the beech. A wonderful time at the park, will be back.

Nearby and a fun walk. Off a paved road enough to be considered a hike but not very difficult. Good trail to tire out the dogs!

Nice trail for running. Only couple short spots that are steep enough you'd walk, but overall easy trail for family hike to burn off an hour or less.

Nice loop trail accessible from the lower parking lot, finishes close to the bathrooms. The trail has several information plaques that discuss the trees and environment. Some spots can get a bit muddy but there are ways around it if you don't want to go through it. There's also signs pointing you in the right direction along with some benches in the path. I was hoping for an ocean view but you won't see it until you get off the trail. Definitely worth doing, if anything go for the beach.

Pretty straightforward trail. Was fairly muddy today. One note is that it is a park that requires a Discovery Pass, or a one day $10 fee. I didn't have cash or a checkbook on me, and had no cell service; so I had to turn around, drive until I had service, and pay online. :)

A good place to get away and hike the trails and enjoy nature. Wear water resistant boots for the mud puddles on the path.
