Bluff Point has an easy, well-marked loop trail that takes you to the bluff overlooking the Atlantic. I think it was under 4 miles round trip. There is a beach area available, but we didn't use that. There is plenty of parking.

Wide trails for biking or family adventures. Some cliff area/scrambles off the path for those looking for a little more excitement. All in all a good excursion for any level hiker.

Great place to hike or walk the path to the point. Views are awesome as one looks out over the shimming waters of the ocean. Vernal pools and tidal marshes give way to treats of Mother Nature. Birds of every species of the area can...More

Nice hiking trails and kayak launch area. Beautiful views of the water. Spent a couple hours hiking and relaxing on the rocks over looking the water. Great place for a picnic.

Parts of it are as long as it has sturdy tires. Parking lot is dirt and bumpy but then there is a grassy area and jetty. So it would work if it it has rugged wheels.
