  • Went walking here for the first time and it was excellent. A mix of concrete in the woods trails and more traditional pine straw on sand. There is a mix of shorter and longer trails so you should...  more »

  • I'm not sure about this place. It was too secluded and empty for me. My friend and I started the trail and we turned back after a minute into walking. We started to get scared. I did saw a cute little turtle though. From some of the reviews I saw online, there is a little sitting area at the end overlooking the water but I didn't make it that far on the trail.
  • Loved the truck! The only issue is beyond some distance we lost the trail and ended up towards the side of the main road. Again took a u turn to come to same place to return. It is very nice track of an hour.... will visit again.
  • Very beautiful place to walk and hike! The dirt trails are a little soft so be careful very easily can you twist an ankle!! Wear hiking shoes or boots! I own The Millimeter To My Lens and this is a #1 spot to take beautiful family photos, graduation photos, maternity photos and wedding photos!! Google search me today to book a shoot at this beautiful location!
  • very nice place to spend 1+ hours hiking, walking and just enjoying nature.
  • Map is poor. The paths are unnamed once entering area. Never found birding path. Blue path had been tilled making it very difficult to walk on. Saw about 5 species of birds. Positive was seeing small approximately 3" Gopher tortoise eating grass on the path.
