Starting from Parking Area J you will find this trail to be a moderately easy hike, or an easy mountain bike ride with some technical spots. A mixed base of sand, roots, mud, and crushed oyster shells adds to the uniqueness of this trail. This is basically an out and back trail, but by using some of the park roads you can make it a loop. You will follow bluffs along the lagoon, where you will have views of water for most of your hike or ride. At approximately half way, you can visit the 1,100-foot fishing pier, which is the longest free-standing pier on the East coast, or you can get something to eat at the café. Take water and during the warm months insect repellant is a must.

Directions:
