Trail shared by Miguel Vieira

Run to the beach through massive sand dunes.

Miguel Vieira

Features Birding

Description

At the parking lot for the Stillwell Hall Site, dune and beach access is blocked by fencing. Instead, head south on the multi-use path by the parking lot until you reach an opening in the fence leading toward beach. Follow the trail through a small canyon between massive dunes until you reach the beach.

Flora & Fauna

The dunes are mostly covered in non-native ice plant.
