I took my three year old twins, seven year old daughter, and 12 year old niece on this hike. They all did fine. The only challenge was the previously mentioned sand hill part of the trail.

Rated as moderate, but one sand hill could probably be considered difficult for some hikers. My husband and I enjoyed the peaceful hike. The trail is well marked and easy to follow.

A not too hard trail, but one that climbs hills and a sandy area that will definitely challenge you! Dunes meet forest and you never know what kind of nature you will see.

Hiked this trail with my dad and brother and had an awesome time. It's a moderately intense hike but nothing too serious.
