“Four mile round trip run on Chic's Beach.”
— Jon Long
Dogs are allowed on the beach in the mornings and evenings.
Parking is free around the residential neighborhood in Chics Beach.
This four mile loop starts at Seaview Ave. and Ocean View Ave. in Chics Beach and follows the beach on low traffic neighborhood streets until you hit the beach around Lynnhaven Inlet. The entire road system in the area is connected by small trails so you don't have to worry about skirting through high traffic areas. Once you are on Chicks Beach the run is a straight line back to your starting position. I recommend timing the run for sunset or sunrise. The view is great from the beach when you are running back at sunset. Parking is also easy to find during the morning and evening when the beach people are not there.
Flora & Fauna
Sand dunes with hinterland flora from the beach, overhanging trees and gardens from the road/trails.
