    Trail us especially good for a birdwatching. We saw ducks, sandpipers, black-necked stilts and others on the pond. There are several view point. Friday's at 7.30am - 9am guided tour. The trail is relatively short. It's even possible to go there with a stroller. If you enter from the exit side the trail is wheelchair accessible . Kids loved the sandy beach nearby. It's turtles nesting area.

    Beautiful beach at the end of a short pleasant trail that goes around a pond. Not too many people. Saw a turtle feeding on sea grass, and befriended a wild chicken that ate our Chex Mix and fell asleep by our beach blanket. May want to bring bug repellant to keep sand gnats at bay.

    I love this trail. When you are finished, go straight to Francis Beach and take a dip in the water!
