Great bike ride through natural dunes and local forest

Rent a bike and pedal to the Beech Forest! It is very relaxing for couples or the whole family. Bring something to eat and have a picnic! Yey!

This is a reasonable walk on paths through the Beech Forest You see birds and native plants. It quite level and quite shady, so it's suitable for young children and seniors, and anyone in between.

My husband and I hiked here on a drizzly day in April. Even then, it was a really pretty area, with lots of wildlife, including very friendly chickadees.
