This area is so peaceful and beautiful. You cannot take a bad picture. Recommend spending more time than we had. It's a trek to the Lighthouse - may be next time.

Really enjoyed this walk. Be conscious of the tides. We turned around about 20 min from the lighthouse. High tide was at 3:00 the day we were there. When we got back to the starting point around 1:30 there was already very little beach to walk on (ie the wet stuff that is easy to walk on rather than dry... More

I loved this place. Be prepared for a long walk if you want to make it to the lighthouse. We didn't make it that far but it was still beautiful. I would like to try again, but more prepared for a long one. Bring your sunscreen. one you are on the beach there is no cover from the sun.

Great place. I was bummed to learn that running out to the lighthouse was not allowed. Cool to see a baby seal on the beach, though on my return, the official overwatching this cute animal had to warn me not to accidentally bump into it--it was VERY camouflaged!

Loved the Refuge. The trail to the Spit was easy and lovely. Once we got to the beach, we had a 9% grade down the hill, then rather chunky rocks on the beach. I didn't really "dislike" it... but folks need to be aware that baby strollers and cane-users don't work here.

Lived just .10 mile from this haven. Although we often phitographed, walked, hiked, ran, camped, combed the Oceanside it was never enough. Anytime of day is fine, morning is often socked in and evening is magical.

I liked the views and the natural state it is kept in. Short walk to the beach and bluffs. A longer walk and you will be at a light house.

This provided a great walk through a beautiful forest area and then opened to the beach. The best of both worlds.

From the trail head to the beach is a great walk with trees and two trails (paved and unpaved). beach is wild with crashing waves. We walked about a mile but did not attempt to go out to the light house at the end of a five mile walk. The spit is an interesting formation and this is one of... More

A bit of a walk but shady until you get to the water. A mega long trek if you walk to the lighthouse
