We always enjoy the trails at the swamp--the boardwalk makes it interesting and we've seen several good birds here.

Beautiful microclimate in the National Seashore....a boardwalk thru this interesting white cedar area...silent...shaded...lovely peaceful walk you will enjoy. Some of it is sand road, but no hills or difficult walking. Be sure to see the ocean overlook at the other end of the parking lot for 360 degree view!
