Easy surface of sand, pine needles, wood chips, boardwalks. Level, no elevation change.
Great photography and birding opportunities; vast bay views. Osprey build nests in the spring, and we spotted one less than 5 minutes from the parking lot - bring a telephoto lens or binoculars (we use a lightweight monocular). The trails are very easy and are better suited for short loops from the main parking lot; a loop longer than 6.9 isn’t really possible. This is one of NJ’s beachy hikes and may not fit your definition of “hiking”. Some road noise along RED.
