Runner Notes

I wouldn't recommend this run, unless you like lots of roots, mud, and slick spots.

Description

Plan on stopping at the lighthouse for a tour and a view of the bay. The trail can be very slick due to the moisture, so I would recommend a running stick to anyone prone to hurt knees or ankles.

This trail can be combined with an out and back on the Hobbit Trail for a pleasant oceanside experience.

Flora & Fauna

Ferns, moss, maple trees, and oak grow in this area.
