There is still open space and you will find this at Gordons Pond! Nice clean trail with lots of birds and bay/ocean view. It's about 1 mile from the Boardwalk

I think so. But usually the trail is very busy and some bicyclists are going way too fast. Keep the dog cool and comfortable in the car so you can enjoy a safer experience.

Yes there is a fee as it is part of the State Park. If you have a park pass you can enter with that.
