“Excellent out-and-back for trail running and hiking.”— Carleton L
At the bottom, the trail crosses the first of two bridges, with cool sections of boardwalk in between. Right around two miles, you'll see a pavilion, bear box, and outhouse for campers. Proceed a little further and you'll end up on the beach. Enjoy the view before you turn around and head back the way you came.
Caines Head and cabins are further down the beach, and it's possible to continue on depending on the tides (low tide only).
