best trail in the dunes

Beautiful flora and fauna. Well-maintained trails.

Beautiful park, clean facilities and awesome trails. Can't wait to visit again!

Went to do the loop for the first this morning- arrived at 8:30 and the spider webs were TERRIBLE. I am a regular hiker and am not phased by bugs, webs, etc., but there were SO many at the beginning of the loop- the first mile and a half- that you couldn't walk 10 yards without running straight into another one. They were large webs and large spiders, so it really made it tough to just relax, zone out, or enhoy the scenery because I was so on edge looking out for the next web. I finally turned around and came back because I was so anxious from it. I don't know enough about the type of spiders they were, or if they cut their webs down (so maybe going later in the day would be better?) but it was really unpleasant. I will have to try again in early Fall!

Awesome nature center! Bike trail well used...Not so great for hiking, but ok.
Again GO FOR THE NATURE CENTER!

Lots of offshoots on the trail, and good sights. really enjoyed the bridges and the playground at the beginning. Trails for me and playground for the kids. :)
