Accessibility is limited during summer months.

Overview

There are two and a half options for walking this spit of land. One is to walk along the shore on the ocean side. Two is to walk on the Sand Trail road that is open to off-road vehicles from Labor Day to Memorial Day, which provides a reasonable barrier from southerly wind. The half is to walk along the pond shore.

Not all of the shore is passable because it is marshlands, and even then, you can only walk at low tide.

Need to Know

No facilities.

Runner Notes

Great for running.

Description

The parking area is just behind the dunes of the shore, so it is convenient. This attracts quite a number of fishermen and during the summer months, it can feel quite festive in the evenings.

There is a track for 4x4 vehicles that you can walk. The dominant wind is usually out of the southwest so the dunes and the pines offer protection on windy days. A little past the mid-point, the flora drops off and the dune grass open wide. There is an outcrop of trees again, near the breach way and jetty.

Flora & Fauna

Migratory birds and seals, deer and coyote.

When the sky is on, the beach is the best place to see the color and form.
