“A short boardwalk offering access to a beautiful interdune environment for all visitors.”— Brian Smith
This is the best area to get an up-close look at several of the wildflowers that thrive here, while preserving the park's resources. There are interpretive signs and benches positioned at different points along the boardwalk.
