The boardwalk at The Dunes Park has been completely redone and widened. The distance
is just a tad shorter but is a much better running surface. Took about a year to complete and a huge fishing pier has been added. FAB U LOUS!

lots of fun on a specialized diverge but the bumpy road to get there sucked next time ill take the other interance

Beautiful hike on the beach, walk way, and nature trails. Visited the pier to hear some fish stories. Took some beautiful pictures on the rocks and of the lighthouse. Relaxed and enjoyed a picnic spot as well.

I love Smyrna Dunes. $10 is a little pricey for one day entry, but the $20 annual parking pass is 100% worth it if you live in the area.

We love bringing our Boston Terrier here!
Friendly staff, nice walking trails, and plenty of room for all.
My only suggestion is to check schedules before going.

Pretty! love that dogs have their own beach and swim in the water.
Walking the boardwalk is a nice way to get them excited, which parallels a sand trail too.
No one is allowed on the inside of the circluar boardwalk, so the beach is the only escape. The park does have restrictions on which parts of the boardwalk allows dogs, so be mindful of signs.
Be cautious of the current in the water if you visit the beach with your four legged best friend

Nice easy walk near the beach, lots of places to exit the boardwalk and go straight to the beach. There's also a little beach specifically for dogs!

As somebody else already said, there is a $10 entrance fee that we weren't aware of...seems a little steep to me, but if you live near the area you can also pay $20 for a pass that allows you access all year long.

Nice trails, decent markings. Be ready to move off the trail for the frequent mountain bikes. Also watch out for the loose sugar sand on the way to and from the parking area.

Great, this was my first hike, and I was exhausted after 10 miles. We saw a rattle snake, alligator, and lots of birds. The trail has lots of branches so you need to keep an eye on the floor so you don't trip. There is a historical plantation mound near.

This is a great spot to take the dogs on the beach. A little bit of a walk to the ocean but worth it since there's so little spots along the beach that are dog friendly.

Well maintained, has a few turn offs that take you to the river. Beautiful view on Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and the New Smyrna Inlet. Dog friendly :)

Beware!!!! You must pay $10 to enter this park. I wish someone would have told me that. The lady was very rude and unfriendly. This looks like a nice place to spend the day but I wouldn't waste $10 for a 2mile bike ride.

We like taking our dogs here as they are allowed on the boardwalk before 10am. (It's okay if you stay later than that - you just have to walk back on the sand path vs. the boardwalk.) The walk to and from the beach isn't bad but there is indeed little shade. Make sure to bring whatever provisions you need with you - food/fresh water/sun shade. At the parking area there are facilities with vending machines and a wash off station, which was nice for hosing down the dogs after getting all sandy/salty. The view of the Ponce Inlet lighthouse and across the river is nice.
