  • My boys and I visited briefly while traveling through the area. It was recommended by a friend. So glad we checked it out! The trails through the woods are clean, well-maintained, and easy to walk...

  • Definitely one of the highlights of my Fenwick Island trip. I found this out of the way ecological preserve quite accident looking for a hiking spot. My pup and I took an impromptu swim and we're immediately surrounded by horseshoe crabs. So many interesting things to see. People were kayaking. Will definitely visit again
  • I saved two horseshoe crabs! Thank you for saving this space for wildlife and migrating birds and butterflies! What a nice trail. I would have loved to see it in the spring/summer. It’s a bummer that so much forest has been cut down for greedy humans.
