Free with regular park entry fees.
Come enjoy a guided hike through ancient dunes shaded by a maritime hammock. Discover the park's natural communities while exploring this unique trail. Although only a mile long, this hike is more challenging than our other trails due to the natural sloping landscape.
Please meet at the Hilltop Picnic Area, near the parking lot, and we will walk into the hammock together. Suggested items to bring are binoculars, comfortable walking shoes, a camera, drinking water, bug spray, and sunscreen. This event is weather permitting and subject to cancellation.
