Runner Notes

Occasional sections of the trail are covered in sand which makes progress tough. Overall, there are very few obstacles and there is ample shade away from the beach.

Description

The Dune Ridge Trail winds four miles through five distinct natural communities, including maritime hammock, beach dune, and depression marsh and finishes its last mile and a half with a breathtaking stroll on the sandy beach. Keep your eye out for colorful Painted Buntings from late spring to early fall who nest in the scrubby flatwoods here.

Bugs are prevalent on this trail. Make sure to bring bug spray and a mosquito net if you have one.
