The Pinelands Trail travels through a heavily wooded area from where it starts off of the Cedar Point Loop Trail
to an access road to the north.
The easygoing doubletrack connects with various spurs that head toward viewpoints or other sections of the woods. This gives runners a nice opportunity to pick and choose where they want to explore.
The shade and temperatures are quite pleasant because of all the trees, though you might also run across a fallen limb or two. If accessing the trail from the Cedar Point Loop Trail
, make sure to time your outing with the tides. If it's high, you may get wet running back to the boat ramp.
The boat ramp provides access to some great fishing spots in the region. And Cedar Point Preserve is a popular destination for bird watching, including the brightly colored painted bunting.
